Donald Trump Defends Demand for Forest Management in Response to California Wildfires

More than 3,300 firefighters are making progress against the massive wildfire, which was 67% contained as of Friday.

Tamara Conry said she should never have been the list. In the end, 44 people died in several counties.

In Southern California, crews continued to gain ground against a blaze of more than 153 square miles that destroyed more than 500 structures in Malibu and communities. That led authorities to devise a staggered evacuation plan - one that they used when fire came again last week.

But Joe Estes, a 26-year-old salesman from Magalia who voted for Trump, said he feels good about the president's visit and hopes it will focus attention on the need to rebuild.

In his Fox News interview on the eve of his visit, the president repeated his criticism.

"You need forest management".

Wallace asked Trump if he believed that climate change contributed to the fires, due to hotter and drier conditions.

"We're trying to follow up with those people who are calling in to find out if they've made any contact with their loved ones", Collins said.

"The thing he's tweeting about is his property", Shawkey said.

But for every heartbreaking story to come out of this disaster, there's another uplifting story of heroism or bravery. As of Tuesday morning, November 13th, the fire is only 30 percent contained and there are over 200 people missing.

Honea has said investigators combined all the information they have received from callers since the fire erupted more than a week ago.

Mr Honea said evacuation orders were issued through 5,227 emails, 25,643 phone calls and 5,445 texts, in addition to social media and the use of loudspeakers. Brown and Newsom have been vocal critics of Trump.

"It's already a zoo here and I don't care who the president is". "I'm not saying that in a negative way, a positive - I'm just saying the facts".

With winter coming on, many are seeking answers on what assistance will be provided.

Families who lost their homes in the fires are going to have a very hard time finding a place to live, Butte County Housing Authority Executive Director Ed Mayer said.

"We're having to stay at a Marriott, which is like $100 a night, and we're running out of money", Wilson said as he stood outside in rubber sandals and no socks - the only footwear he had when he fled the flames that destroyed his home. A further 616 buildings have been wrecked by the Woolsey Fire blazing on the western fringes of Los Angeles.

Officials have said it's hard to determine the number of missing.

Schools across a large swath of the state were closed because of smoke, and San Francisco's world-famous open-air cable cars were pulled off the streets.
