19 things you can do to help California wildfire victims right now

The Camp fire - one of the state's deadliest - virtually obliterated the town of Paradise, home to more than 26,000 people.

Deputy Coroner Justin Sponhaltz, right, of the Mariposa County Sheriff's Office, carries a bag with human remains found at a burned-out home at the Camp Fire in Paradise, California.

Luckily for Miley (born Destiny), she still has a $160M fortune to rebuild her dream home, as well as the $5.9M 33-acre, five-bedroom Tennessee farmhouse she bought past year.

Two wildfires also continued to wreak havoc in southern California, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee. More than 250,000 people, were evacuated, according to published reports.

Malibu and other beach communities have been evacuated too, and residents that haven't left yet have been urged to do so. Some of Hollywood's biggest stars, including Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian, were among the evacuees. "I need to find my mom - I'm not giving up hope she's out there".

Fire officials say the fire is about 25 percent contained and has destroyed some 6,600 buildings.

Winds gusts increased Saturday night, setting a "red flag wind warning" - meaning active critical weather conditions of strong gusty winds and dry conditions will present a challenge to firefighters and containment efforts.

The blaze grew to more than 18,000 acres (72.4 square kilometers) in less than eight hours. Officials said two firefighters and multiple residents were injured.

He said that at least 228 people were still unaccounted for, adding that DNA testing equipment was being sent should it be required to help identify victims.

Flames engulfed hospitals, homes and other structures as it whipped through Paradise.

Wildfires are devastating California, forcing evacuations of an estimated 75,000 homes in western Los Angeles and eastern Ventura counties.

She further stoked rumours of a shock return in an interview in October when she was asked if she would run again. After her remark, Donald Trump told Fox News that he would be "very happy" to run against her in two years.

"In much of California we're getting to a pretty much year-round fire season as in the past it used to be limited to five or six months out of the year", says North. They were backed up by helicopters and water tankers.

The Woolsey fire is one of three major blazes burning across California.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby echoed Brown's sentiments, noting how widespread the fire destruction has been across the state.

"Welcome to my home in Malibu", Butler could be heard saying in an Instagram video, as he walked up to what remained of the structure.

The fire is the most destructive in the state's history and the joint deadliest.

"Firefighters have never seen anything like this in their lives", he wrote.

He also discussed climate change and criticised President Donald Trump.

He has previously blamed Californian officials for wildfires and threatened to withhold federal funding.

On Sunday, Governor Jerry Brown said the fires were driven by climate change and that California needs to learn to adapt.

The twitter account for the California Professional Firefights union stated that the President "owes the men and women of the fire service an apology".
