Strong winds challenging California firefighters

California wildfire death toll leaps to 25

More than 200 people are unaccounted for, according to officials.

Six more people were confirmed killed in the Camp Fire in the north of the state, taking the toll there to 29.

Singer Neil Young's home was also destroyed, his second house lost to fires in California.

In southern California, the "Woolsey Fire" engulfed parts of Thousand Oaks, where the community is still shell-shocked after a Marine Corps veteran shot dead 12 people in a country music bar on Wednesday. Two people were reported killed. President Donald Trump has blamed "poor" forest management for the fires.

The actor documented his horrifying ordeal with his millions of followers on his Instagram story account Sunday after the deadly blaze known as the Woolsey fire burned his Malibu mansion to the ground. "Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!"

On Sunday, during a trip to France, he tweeted: "With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California".

Jerry Brown made during last year's Thomas Fire, Lorenzen said extreme fire conditions were "kind of the new normal", thanks to climate change.

Authorities say one of the California wildfires is about 20 percent contained and the other only five percent.

"The president's message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is Ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines", the statement read.

He added: "Wildfires are sparked and spread not only in forested areas but in populated areas and open fields fueled by parched vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography". He found his home leveled - a large metal safe and pipes from his septic system the only recognizable traces.

Rescuers also spent hours on Saturday collecting bodies around Paradise and placing them in a black hearse.

Gunman who killed 12 died from self-inflicted gunshot
However, "our crisis intervention team, our mental health specialists who met with him, talked to him, and cleared him". I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is "hopes and prayers".or "keep you in my thoughts".


It has consumed around 83,000 acres, destroyed at least 177 buildings and was 10 per cent contained, Cal Fire said Sunday.

With hearses standing by, crews stepped up the search for bodies in the smoking ruins of Paradise, and relatives desperately looked for more than 100 missing loved ones, as wind-whipped wildfires raged Sunday on both ends of the state. A total of 1,500 structures were threatened.

Another fire, called Hill Fire, measured a little more than 4,500 acres on Saturday.

Strong winds in combination with low relative humidity and dry fuel moistutures "will continue to produce extremel fire behavior including risky rates of spread, and long range spotting", Cal Fire said. "It's the event that we have feared for a long time". "We tried to defend them with garden hoses, but it wasn't enough".

"Things are not the way they were 10 years ago. So, with the crop gone, we won't grow another".

As the fire moved on, displaced residents were allowed to return to whatever was left of their homes, in some cases finding only ash and charred foundations.

Thick smoke from California's Camp Fire obscures the Earth's surface as the wildfire burned on November 9, 2018.

Two other fires were raging in southern California. Assigned to the fire are 3,242 personnel, 418 engines, 19 helicopters, 56 bulldozers and 40 water tenders.

Los Angeles firefighters have been battling to control the intense wildfires which have reportedly taken the lives of 31 people.

Give an evacuee or a firefighter a free place to stay through Airbnb. The Hill Fire has since been 70 percent contained but the Woolsey Fire continues to be a threat. Two structures have been destroyed.
