The loss of life is known to be over two hundred and many are yet to be account- ed for. The fires in general are now reported to be under control. While the news from the fire-swept region is now coming in more rapidly and a definite idea of its extent and horror can now 'be obtained, no lists of the dead or injured are obtainable. It may be weeks, according to those who escaped the flames, before even incomplete lists of the casualties can .be compiled. Fugitives scattered in all directions when the disaster overtook them. Many of these perished in the swamps or lakes, others having fallen prey to hunger and hardships encountered in forests. Straggfers may be com- ing in for weeks before the lists of the missing can be completed.
