25 people are now listed as missing from the Camp Fire, California's deadliest wildfire, down from a high of about 1,200 two weeks ago, Reuters reports.

Details: The missing count has been halved since Friday when 49 people were listed as missing, according to a statement from the Butte County Sheriff Department. And, as the L.A. Times reported last month, the missing list was filled with duplicates and misspellings at its peak. The death toll from the fire, which is now contained, stands at 88.
