Death toll from Hawaii wildfires rises to 89

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 13 Aug 2023, 11:51 am

Hawaii/IBNS/UNI: The number of deaths due to the wildfires in Hawaii has increased to 89, NBC News reports, citing Hawaii Governor Josh Green.

The death toll makes the Maui wildfires the deadliest in modern US history.

The disaster has officially become deadlier than California’s Camp Fire which killed 85 people in 2018.

Earlier on Saturday, Maui County said in a statement that firefighting efforts continue in Lahaina, Pulehu/Kihei, and Upcountry Maui.
