"I'm on my way to bring firefighters water and food", she tweeted. She previously said her heart was with others facing "this very bad disaster". "You're thinking about how you have to get home at all costs". "She said, 'I don't know if I can do this ...' Her son said, 'Mom you have to, you have to drive through the flames'".

There were shout-outs as well to the firefighters struggling to contain the fires in what were described as especially hard conditions.

"These guys are heroes", filmmaker Guillermo del Toro posted on Twitter.

Butte County Sheriff Korey Honea said late Friday it was his "sad duty" to update the Camp Fire death toll to nine. "We're talking about a serious fire situation, but thankfully we have not lost a single life".

Crews had made more progress on the Hill Fire, which authorities said was burning in an area with "sparse fuel".

"A fireman took him to the house to confirm", Breeding said.

"The flames were whipping and spreading so fast", Whitney Vaughan said after fleeing her home in Paradise. It's gone. Fire has taken it away. "This is a devastating thing, and it's happening to so many people".

ABC senior meteorologist Rob Marciano told Sky News that a "lull in the winds" was expected on Saturday but would not last long.

Gaza officials say six Palestinians killed in Israeli raid
The Palestinian Health Ministry said six people, including at least five militants, were killed and seven others wounded. Multiple alarm sirens have sounded in the Eshkol Regional Council in southern Israel near the Gaza border.

Nine people were found dead in and around the Northern California town of Paradise, where more than 6,700 homes and businesses were burned down by the 90,000-acre (36,400 hectares) Camp Fire, the state's most destructive on record, authorities said. Dozens of other people were reported missing.

In Thousand Oaks, a community mourning this week's mass shooting, a recreation center where survivors grieved was filled with people fleeing the fire. "And as hard as it may be, homes can be rebuilt, property can be reacquired".

"Fire is now burning out of control and heading into populated areas of Malibu", the city said in a statement online.

Also left waiting was Caitlyn Jenner, whose hilltop home appeared intact when it was shot by a photographer for The Associated Press on Saturday morning. Jenner's representative noted that the Olympic gold medalist wouldn't know the extent of any damage to the home until she was allowed to return to it.

Even outside the evacuation zone, the impact of the fire was being felt by others in the entertainment industry.

Fallon went back to his property, where he, and his parents and their animals weathered the fire with a garden hose. It was the most destructive fire in California's history until this week.

"He's lost, he's confused, he's trying to hang in there", she said.

Northeastern gusts of up to 50 miles per hour are expected to pick up around 8 p.m. Saturday, Cal Fire spokesman Kevin Tidwell said.

Mandatory evacuation orders were issued for more than 52,000 people in the scenic area in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. It killed eight people in July and August and burned about 1,100 homes.

According to reports, the wildfire is also thought to have destroyed the TV and movie production location known as Western Town at the Paramount Ranch, which was used for productions including 1938's The Adventures Of Marco Polo and TV's Dr Quinn, Medicine Woman, and more recently for hit drama series Westworld.
