Officials begin agonising search for fire victims

Celebs Push Back at Donald Trump's 'Heartless&apos Tweet About California Wildfires

"She's a strong, smart woman".

Speaking on CNN, Honea said while he holds out hope that many people listed as missing will turn up safe, "given what we've dealt with so far with casualties as a result of this fire, I have concerns that it (the death toll) will rise".

She thanked firefighters and the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department for their help in fighting the fires and urged her fans to donate money to fire aid and disaster relief organisations.

Jerry Brown said of the role of climate change in driving the fires. Brown told a press briefing that federal and state governments must do more forest management but said that's not the source of the problem. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it...

Firefighters battling fire with shovels and bulldozers, flame retardant and hoses expected wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour overnight Sunday. Officials said they expect the wind to die down by midday Monday, but there was still no rain in sight.

All told, more than 8,000 firefighters statewide were battling wildfires that destroyed more than 7,000 structures and scorched more than 325 square miles (840 square kilometres), the flames feeding on dry brush and driven by blowtorch winds.

Meanwhile, the Woolsey Fire near Los Angeles killed two people and forced more than 275,000 people to leave their homes, bringing the total death toll in the state to 31.

In the south, the Woolsey and Hill fires also continued to rage.

Butte County Sheriff Cory Honea said that 228 people remained unaccounted for since the fire mostly incinerated the foothill town of 27,000 people on Thursday.

The Camp Fire, 60 km north of Sacramento, burned down more than 6,700 homes and businesses in the town of Paradise, more structures than any other wildfire recorded in California. The smaller Hill Fire covered 4,531 acres and was 75% contained.

But Cal Fire spokesman Bill Murphy warned that gusty winds predicted into Monday morning could spark "explosive fire behavior".

While premieres shed their glitz, there were few reports of industry production affected by the wildfire that has killed two and destroyed more than 400 homes.

About 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, majority in southern California, and 150,000 remain displaced.

Stewart said, "Mr. President, while people's homes are burning, while lives are being lost & while firefighters are risking their lives, California needs words of support & encouragement, not threats or finger pointing & accusations".

Malibu celebrities and mobile-home dwellers in nearby mountains were slowly learning whether their homes had been spared or reduced to ash. The rocker's post references Trump's controversial tweet which blamed "gross mismanagement" for the devastating wildfire, which have displaced hundreds of thousands of Californians.

Around Malibu, more than 3000 firefighters from around California and neighbouring U.S. states worked with aircraft, including 19 helicopters and three DC-10 tanker plane, to save lives and billions of dollars of property.
