  • 25 dead, homes destroyed in California wildfires

Four search and recovery teams are now combing through the remains of Paradise and a mobile DNA lab has been dispatched.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the county consulted teams of anthropologists because, in some cases, investigators have been able to recover only bones and bone fragments.

Savannah Rauscher said she got a reverse 911 call ordering her to evacuate her Edgewood Lane home at 8:30 a.m. But she said she always feared a wildfire since she moved there 15 years ago, especially during recent years in which there's been nearly no rain. Hundreds of miles to the south, at least two people have died in the Woolsey conflagration threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

All told, an estimated 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, majority in Southern California.

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.

More than 200 people are still unaccounted for, Honea said.

But we have to enjoy our football as well exactly in the moment because it was, so far, pretty successful". We are not showing this quality, we must wake up and when we lose the game we must know how we lost it.

Hollywood actor Gerard Butler returned to his home in Malibu to find that it has been completely destroyed by the wild fire now ripping through California.

The blaze, dubbed the Camp Fire, was driven by dry conditions and strong winds. "We do not want any more lives lost".

Vehicles and homes burn as the Camp fire tears through Paradise, California.

Twenty-three people have been killed in Northern California's Camp Fire and have been two killed in Southern California's Woolsey Fire.

Among the towns under evacuation orders is Thousand Oaks, where a gunman killed 12 people in a rampage on Wednesday.

"Sadly my house couldn't be saved", Grammer wrote alongside a horrifying image of her home burning. But the strong, dry Santa Ana winds that blow from the interior toward the coast returned after a one-day lull, fanning the flames.

Thick smoke from California's Camp Fire obscures the Earth's surface as the wildfire burned on November 9, 2018. The Hill Fire has since been 70 percent contained but the Woolsey Fire continues to be a threat.

"Things are not the way they were 10 years ago ... the rate of spread is exponentially more than it used to be", said Lorenzen, urging residents to not put their lives at risk by trying to defend their own homes instead of evacuating.

So far, a total of 19 of the people killed in what authorities have dubbed the "Camp Fire" have been reported in Paradise, where more than 6,700 buildings - a lot of them residences - have been consumed by the late-season inferno.

Gov. Jerry Brown said he is requesting a major-disaster declaration from President Donald Trump that would make victims eligible for crisis counseling, housing and unemployment help, and legal aid.

The first fatality of the California wildfires has been identified as an ailing woman who was found dead in her bed in her burned-out northern California home. "To those who have lost friends and family members, homes and businesses, know that the entire state is with you". Authorities confirmed her death late Friday.

The president of the California Professional Firefighters, Brian K Rice, said the message is an attack on some of the people fighting the devastating fires.
