The official death toll for the wildfire catastrophe on the island of Maui is running at about 111 now and is expected to rise.

But a published report on Friday charged that the toll now is closer to 500 – and still rising.

The report in the Daily Mail cites claims from local residents who "have been forced to carry out their own search and recovery efforts in the aftermath of the deadly Lahaina wildfires."

A source, Maui resident Allisen Medina, 24, told the publication, "I know there are at least 480 dead here in Maui and I don't understand why they're not saying that."

She said the horror has included family members "being left to find the charred corpses of their loved ones themselves."
