North Bay fires death toll rises to 44

The Sacramento County coroner’s office today confirmed the death of a Santa Rosa man who was burned in last month’s Tubbs Fire, one of several fires that raged through Northern California.

Michael Azarian, 41, died around 5 a.m. Sunday at the UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento.

The cause of death was extensive burn injuries, a coroner’s office spokesperson said.

Azarian’s death is the 44th from the wildfires in Northern California last month. Twenty-four of the deaths were in Sonoma County.
