In Southern California, relief and heartache awaited those returning home.

"By the time I evacuated and tried to get to her house, that area was already engulfed by fire", he said. But some a half-block away were laid to waste, as were dozens more, and virtually everything on the landscape around the community had been turned to ash.

Brown said, "forest management is one element - it's only one". If you are interested in getting involved see next tweet.

Some of the thousands of people forced from their homes by the blaze were allowed to return, and authorities reopened USA 101, a major freeway through the fire zone in Los Angeles and Ventura counties. Authorities called in a mobile DNA lab and anthropologists to help identify victims of the most destructive wildfire in California history.

The "Wrecking Ball" crooner said she lost her entire home to the fire but made it out safely with her animals and other loved ones, urging people to donate to emergency services.

Firefighters used a respite from strong winds on Saturday to drop fire retardants to strengthen firebreaks.

The death toll of the northern California wildfires has climbed to 25 and more than 110 people are missing as firefighters battle high winds and dry conditions.

The Woosley Fire, which is affecting residents in Ventura and Los Angeles, has burned through 83,275 acres and was only 10 percent contained.

Miley Cyrus, Neil Young, Robin Thicke, Camille Grammer, Shannen Doherty have also shared online updates, informing their followers that their Malibu-area homes have been destroyed by the flames.

Fires are raging in both northern and southern California, and at least 31 people have died.

Trump has been criticized for failing to visit a different American cemetery about 100 kilometres outside of Paris on Saturday. French Interior minister Christophe Castaner later said President Trump's security had "in no way been threatened".

"They plan for it very well", Rice said, singling out Cal Fire for being on top of the state's wildfires.

Venture County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen hadn't heard about the Edison report.

As he drove through the smoke and haze to yet another shelter, he said, "I'm also under a dark emotional cloud".

Three unsafe fires are burning across the state of California, destroying thousands of homes and lives. Evacuations were lifted Monday night for a portion of West Hills in Los Angeles.

Three firefighters suffered minor injuries, Osby said.

"Praying for everyone in Malibu, our city is up in flames".

He'd been forced to evacuate - but returned to the burned out shell of his home.

The extensive celebrity community within Malibu wasn't spared.

Scottish actor Gerard Butler shared a photo of the fire's aftermath, revealing what's left of his burned-down property, and reminding his fans that the firefighters need support.

On Sunday, a fire engine crew searching homes in Paradise found two sets of remains in the smoking ruins of a home and placed bits of charred bone in body bags. That leaves a lot of dry vegetation to feed fires. That change has impacted the ability to move firefighting resources around the state.
