Gerard Butler devastated after wildfires destroy his Malibu home

The sheriff's office in the stricken northern county set up a missing-persons call centre to help connect people. Jerry Brown said at a press briefing.

On Sunday, during a trip to France, he tweeted: "With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California". "We're working with shelters to try to get that information so that we can resolve those cases, but there has been some difficulty", he said.

Firefighters took advantage of a brief calm overnight to make headway against the multiple blazes, but conditions were expected to be hellish on Sunday with winds reaching as high as 110km/h.

But officials warned that the dry conditions feeding the fire are expected to continue into the week and gusts would peak at around 40 miles per hour.

Cyrus wrote that while her "house no longer stands", she was grateful that she, her fiancée Liam Hemsworth and their pets were able to safely evacuate. Many, who have also lost their homes to the wildfire, took to social media to narrate their experience, praise firefighters, send thoughts and reassure fans of their safety and whereabouts.

The devastation was so complete in some neighborhoods that "it's very hard to determine whether or not there may be human remains there", he said.

A transition tag would seem unnecessarily complicated for all parties (including another team wishing to acquire Bell). It's not often players of Bell's caliber hit the open market, but that will happen this offseason.


The number of dead in a wildfire raging in California rose to 29 on Sunday, November 11, matching the deadliest in the state's history as recovery teams found 6 more bodies in the grim search through the wreckage. Together with the smaller Hill Fire, which spans over 4,000 acres and was 75 percent contained as of Sunday night, the Woolsey Fire has destroyed 179 structures, although firefighters estimate another 57,000 are threatened, CNN reports. The area of one of them per night is rapidly increasing and is nearly 30 thousand hectares, the area of the second less, but it's spreading fast due to strong winds.

Celebrities are among those who have lost their Malibu homes in blazes that have killed 31 people across California. In Southern California, where the Woolsey Fire scorched 83,275 acres, the blaze was only 10 percent contained.

In a statement, the union for firefighters said as wildfires threaten lives and homes "Trump has chosen to respond with an irresponsible, reckless and insulting tweet criticizing the work being done on the frontline to contain these disasters". "Welcome to my home in Malibu...half gone". "As a matter of fact this is not a forest fire that rages on as I write this", Young wrote.

Still, vast swaths of the state remained under a red flag warning, a designation used by the National Weather Service to indicate ideal wildland fire conditions. "This will continue in the next 10, 15 to 20 years".

The last few days have engulfed California in one of the wildest fires ever seen. We are safe and surrounded by friends and family.

"To make crass suggestions such as cutting off funding during a time of crisis shows a troubling lack of real comprehension about the disaster at hand and the unsafe job our firefighters do", Harold Schaitberger, General President of the IAFF said.
