Governor: Multiple children among those who perished in Lahaina wildfire
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In a tragic update on Tuesday, Gov. Josh Green has confirmed that multiple children are among those killed in the Lahaina wildfire.
The disaster is the deadliest U.S. wildfire in more than a century.
On HNN’s Sunrise, Green said recovery teams continue to find unimaginable scenes in Lahaina.
In one case, a family of four was found in a burned-out vehicle. In another, the bodies of seven people were discovered in a single home.
“Some of the sights are too much to share just from a human perspective,” Green said.
The death toll from the fire that destroyed Lahaina town stands at 99, but authorities have warned that number will almost certainly rise.
