At least 99 people were confirmed to have died as of Monday, but officials warned the figure was likely to rise as recovery crews with cadaver dogs work their way through hundreds of homes and burned-out vehicles in Lahaina. =

“There are more fatalities that will come,” Hawaii Gov. Josh Green told “CBS Mornings.” “The fire was so hot that what we find is the tragic finding that you would imagine, as though a fire has come through and it’s hard to recognize anybody.”

The historic coastal town on the island of Maui was almost entirely destroyed by the fast-moving inferno Tuesday and Wednesday, with survivors saying there had been no warnings.
