Anyone who can't be reached by a friend or relative is put on the list and remains there until tracked down by authorities. Tens of thousands of people have been displaced by the fire and are seeking help.

The wildfire on November 8 all but leveled the town of Paradise and ravaged neighboring communities. The fire destroyed almost 14,000 homes, 514 businesses and 4,265 other buildings.

PG&E explained its decision not to follow through on warnings that it might shut off power in a filing late Tuesday with the state Public Utilities Commission.

The fast-moving fire already had destroyed parts of Paradise and surrounding towns.

Despite all attempts to save lives, the Camp Fire eventually became the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history, killing at least 88 people and obliterating over 18,000 structures. "PG&E immediately informed all stakeholders of the change in conditions and that no lines would be proactively de-energized".

PG&E has previously reported a power outage occurred on one of its transmission lines around the time the fire began, at 6:30 a.m. on November 8.

However, the utility will de-energize lines during emergencies if requested by state fire officials to protect first responders, McFarland said.

Gov. Jerry Brown signed an executive order Wednesday to help affected school districts by waiving requirements for class sizes, physical education and building codes.
