More than 1,000 people have been reported missing in a California wildfire which has destroyed thousands of homes and killed at least 71, local officials have said, BBC reports.

The death toll rose from 63 on Friday, eight days after the Camp Fire broke out in northern California.

However, the sharp increase in the missing list - from 631 to 1,011 in 24 hours - may not be accurate.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said it was possible it contained duplications.

"I want you to understand that this is a dynamic list," he told reporters.

"The information I am providing you is raw data and we find there is the likely possibility that the list contains duplicate names."
