California wildfires: Woman who 'waited to put make-up on' among dead

With California's Raging Fires, Fear And Devastation

Six additional deaths in a Northern California, raising the death toll to 29 and making it the deadliest wildfire on record in California history.

The utility's report says the so-called Woolsey fire was reported at approximately 2:24 p.m. Thursday, two minutes after the outage on a circuit from a substation.

An estimated 250,000 people have been forced to flee their homes to avoid three major blazes in the state.

"There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor", Trump said in a tweet.

As the Camp Fire burns nearby, a scorched auto rests by gas pumps near Pulga, Calif., on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018.

Butte County Sheriff Cory Honea said the human remains recovered on Sunday included five bodies found at homes and one in a vehicle in Paradise. More than 100 were reported missing.

A auto park in Paradise, California, is a staging area for hearses as search teams try to find bodies of casualties in the fires. The Woolsey fire, which was only 10% contained on Sunday, has burned more than 87,000 acres in three days.

The blaze started on Thursday near Thousand Oaks, about 40 miles (64km) north-west of central Los Angeles.

The count of destroyed homes remained at 177 but it was expected to increase. The smaller Hill Fire, nearby, has scorched 4,530 acres and is 75% contained.

Some looting was reported in the southern fire area over the weekend and police said arrests had been made.


Luxury homes in Malibu and other beach communities are among properties that have fallen victim to the flames.

The air-masses blowing across the western U.S. deserts including Death Valley toward the coast are expected to bring the sustained high winds at least through Tuesday, he said.

"It was way too big a firestorm, " said Lani Netter, whose Malibu home was spared while her neighbor's burned.

Huge plumes of smoke were rising again in the fire area, which stretches miles from the northwest corner of Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley to the Malibu coast.

"We're concerned about the fire jumping out, coming behind us, burning a lot of the territory that has not burned", said Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby.

Along with updates on progress in fighting the fire, he said this blaze signified a shift: fire crews are now facing the most erratic and challenging fight of their lives.

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".

Continuing, Rice explained that Trump's "assertion that California's forest management policies are to blame for catastrophic wildfire is dangerously wrong".

He has previously blamed Californian officials for wildfires and threatened to withhold federal funding. "Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests".
