The 113,000-acre Camp Fire east of Chico, which has killed 29 people and leveled the town of Paradise, has likewise spread mostly through dry vegetation.

Some residents who fled Southern California's huge wildfire were allowed to return home Monday but hundreds of thousands remained under evacuation orders as authorities said the number of homes that burned was expected to grow significantly. The Camp Fire has matched the 1933 Griffith Park disaster in Los Angeles - until now the single deadliest wildfire on record - according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire).

In Northern California, where more than 6700 buildings have been destroyed in the blaze that obliterated Paradise, firefighters contended with wind gusts up to 64 kph overnight, the fire jumping 300 feet across Lake Oroville.

A lull in the wind Saturday gave firefighters a chance to create firebreaks and drop massive amounts of fire retardant, but officials Sunday were anxious about a re-energized Woolsey Fire and the kind of weather that can create a new, uncontrollable wildfire nearly anywhere in tinder-dry California.

Firefighters managed to prevent about 57,000 homes from destruction by the so-called Woosley fire as it raged along a path 20 miles long and 14 miles wide from northwestern Los Angeles through suburbs and the Santa Monica Mountains to the Malibu coast, Osby said. With the cause of the inferno under investigation, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. came under scrutiny after telling state regulators that it had been having a problem with an electrical transmission line in the area before the fire broke out.

The singer wrote that she is "completely devastated" by fires that have killed at least least 31 people and forced thousands to evacuate.

Novak Djokovic: Cristiano Ronaldo watched me, Roger Federer, Nadal
In stark contrast to second seed Roger Federer , Djokovic hit just six unforced errors and won 86% of points on his serve. So, it's more hard than in other tournaments, so everybody has to kind of find their rhythm in the first match.

"These are extreme conditions", Osby said.

A smaller blaze in Southern California, the Hill Fire, was 75 percent contained, officials said.

The couple and their 25-year-old son, Colin, used hoses, buckets of water and chain saws to battle flames and cut back brush as the fire kept coming to life. But it's what is inside the house. "And that's what hurts, those kinds of things hurt because you can't replace that". Shares of PG&E Corp, which operates in northern California, dropped as much as 16 percent, bringing its decline over two sessions to 29 percent, equivalent to $8 billion.

Regarding California's increasingly destructive and lengthening fire season, Governor Jerry Brown told The LA Times, "This is not the new normal; this is the new abnormal".

The fires touched off a series of antagonistic-and "ill-informed"-tweets from President Donald Trump, who erroneously blamed the fires on "gross mismanagement" of the state's forests". Another 228 people remain unaccounted for as of November 12.

"You make up all these stories about the possibility that she's still out there to keep the hope that she's alive", he told The Post. These forensics experts won't have the access they need ahead of CalFire and Forest Service officials on the ground now, he said.
