Death toll from devastating California fires rises to 11

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

The Woolsey fire and smaller Hill blaze have destroyed more than 150 homes and prompted evacuation orders for about 250,000 people from Thousand Oaks northwest of Los Angeles to the celebrity enclave of Malibu. Pieces of bodies were transported by bucket, while intact remains were carried in body bags. "They are a terrifying and deadly force of nature".

"I'm sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames", she wrote on Twitter. Paradise is 180 miles northeast of San Francisco. Of the remaining four, two were in cars and two were in houses in other areas.

Locals fled the danger, but police told AFP some farmers returned to check on their cattle.

"It just doesn't feel real that it's all gone", Fultz said.

Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency to provide assistance to the hardest-hit areas in the fire-prone state.

The fire broke out on Thursday north west of Los Angeles and roared south, jumping the U.S. 101 freeway early on Friday and sweeping into the Santa Monica Mountains.

Dozens of people are reported missing.

They estimate they will need three weeks to fully contain the blaze.

In the northern part of the state, at least five people have been found dead in scorched cars after having tried to flee the disastrous Camp Fire burning about 130 kilometers (80 miles) north of the state capitol.

He said lawmakers would seek to pass gun control legislation when the House meets in January with a Democratic majority. People gathered outside the Rivalry Roasters coffee shop for a vigil for Sean Adler , Thursday, in Simi Valley, Calif.

Trump has been on a unusual one all morning, having also chipped in the following about the Armistice Day commemorations in France: "I am in Paris getting ready to celebrate the end of World War One".

President Donald Trump blamed the fires on forest mismanagement and threatened to withdraw related federal funding.

The "attacking" message is "ill-informed, ill-timed and demeaning" to the victims, the California Professional Firefighters union responded, calling Trump's Saturday tweet "dangerously wrong". "The Los Angeles County Fire Department PIO said at 6:52 p.m. Friday, "...very significant number of homes in the operational area damaged or destroyed by fire", and that it had burned approximately 35,000 acres. "They had us in like a caravan", Napoli said. "We had tremendous, demonic winds is the only way I can put it".

The two blazes are among 16 now active fires in California.

"Not one home will be left standing", he said. Maxime Rieman-Croll, head of insurance research at data firm ValuePenguin, said she doesn't expect homeowners rates to spike immediately, given that companies are required to get any hikes approved by the California Department of Insurance.

"Just landed back home and had 1 hour to pack up & evacuate our home". "It'll be similar wind conditions to when the fire first started, and with a significant wind event like that, our crews are anxious about (the fire's) potential to spread".

Last month, after Trump rekindled his criticism of California's wildfire prevention steps, a spokesman for Brown said Trump's comments lacked credibility.

"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.
