Horses are tied to a pole on the beach in Malibu as the Woolsey fire approaches

San Francisco - Authorities late Sunday confirmed that six more bodies were recovered in Butte County, bringing the death toll in a fatal wildfire in northern California to 29, matching the deadliest blaze on record in the state.

At the briefing, fire commanders described the fire jumping the Feather River at one point Saturday night on the eastern edge of the fire line, and said crews had to protect homes in a rural area northeast of Oroville.

Hones said that 228 people remained unaccounted for while officials located 107 individuals and were working with shelters to establish if people reported missing are there. Hundreds of kilometres to the south at least two people died in the Woolsey conflagration threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

The mayor of Paradise, Jody Jones, said the situation in the town was grim.

The two dead were severely burned, their bodies discovered in a vehicle on a long residential driveway on a stretch of Mulholland Highway in Malibu, where most of the surrounding structures had burned.

"We learned her house was destroyed the other day so don't know what's happened to her - she's kind of homebound, she doesn't have a auto". "I had an opportunity to go up there and take a look for myself".

"I just started weeping", Kelly said.

"Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn't be part of his decision-making on our behalf", Young wrote.

In a post on his website, singer Neil Young stated that he had just lost "another" home to a California fire.


Malibu celebrities and mobile-home dwellers in nearby mountains were slowly learning whether their homes had been spared or reduced to ash.

"Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating".

Gerard Butler posted a pic of his burnt house on Twitter.

"Completely devestated [sic] by the fires affecting my community". "I am one of the lucky ones". My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that's all that matters right now, ' the Hannah Montana alum - who boasts 158.6M social media followers - Insta-storied. "My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong".

Robin Thicke's partner April Love Geary, who is now pregnant, revealed on Instagram stories that their home had been destroyed. They previously posted an image showing a dark plume of smoke filling the sky.

Some of Hollywood's biggest names are calling out President Donald Trump for some of his recent tweets blaming California officials for the state's wildfire crisis as thousands of residents were displaced from their homes over the weekend.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby stressed there were numerous hotspots and plenty of fuel that had not yet burned, but at sunset he said there had been huge successes despite "a very challenging day".

"At a time when our every effort should be focused on vanquishing the destructive fires and helping the victims, the president has chosen instead to issue an uninformed political threat aimed squarely at the innocent victims of these cataclysmic fires", the statement continued.
