Recently, heavy rain and strong wind complicated the search process for the remains of people trapped by the fire.
The precipitation temporarily stopped some search crews Friday who were scouring burned-down areas for remains.
Rain saturates the ground and weighs down trees that may fall over and injure search workers.
A search team from Orange County spent Friday combing through ash and debris at a mobile home park in Paradise that had already been searched once by humans and dogs.
