What the Camp Fire, other California wildfires look like from space

A home burns as the Camp Fire rages through Paradise Calif. on Thursday Nov. 8 2018

The charred remains of 14 more people have been found in and around a Northern California town overrun by flames from a massive wildfire, officials said on Saturday, raising the death toll to at least 23.

Maclean said no details were immediately available about the circumstances of the deaths and that the victims' badly burned condition would make identification hard.

"Heavenly father, please help us, please help us to be safe", Chatfield says in footage obtained by the Daily Mail, her voice cracking as flames lick the pavement and smoke obscures the roadway ahead.

The sheriff's office still has 110 outstanding reports of missing people, Honea said. "Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!" he said. "I'm sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames". The Camp Fire is 20% contained, while the Woolsey Fire is just 5% contained.

It sent thousands fleeing after mandatory evacuations in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Residents who stayed behind to try to save their property or who managed to get back to their neighbourhoods in Paradise found cars incinerated and homes reduced to rubble.

As of Saturday afternoon, the Camp Fire had blackened more than 100,000 acres (40,500 hectares) at the edge of the Plumas National Forest.

An additional 35 people have been reported missing and three firefighters have been injured. The speed of the fire caught everyone off guard as it was driven forward by the high winds and dry landscape. consuming more than 28 square miles (73 square kilometers) by nightfall with firefighters unable to contain any of the blaze, McLean said.

Meanwhile two more people were killed in the south, near Malibu. "They won't let us in the area", Milano wrote Saturday morning local time, before adding, "There are no words for this kind of devastation".

Officials say the state of California has never seen anything like it. The Hill Fire was 25% contained.

Almost 6,500 residences have been destroyed and another 15,000 threatened, according to emergency officials.

Several crews have been assigned to the 70,000 acre Woolsey Fire burning in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. "We pretty much had enough time to get the dogs in the trunk".

School officials told the students that they have been assured by fire officials that the university's buildings were built to withstand fire.

At least 150 houses were destroyed in the county, and more than 200,000 people have been ordered to evacuate. Authorities expect that strong northeastern winds will start up again in the evening, potentially spreading across one of California's biggest lakes into the city of Oroville.

The air is expected to be just as bad Sunday when moderate and gusty northerly winds are expected to continue.

The leader of the union that represents a majority of California's firefighters said Saturday that President Donald Trump should apologize for blaming the state's deadly wildfires on "poor" forest management.

The president pointed out that the fires were expanding very quickly.
