As firefighters make progress in containing a Northern California wildfire that has become the deadliest in the state's recorded history, high winds are expected to fan the flames of another major fire burning further south.

Over in Southern California, 57,000 structures are still threatened by the Woolsey Fire, as it is only 30 percent contained too.

The sheriff said he also has requested three portable morgue teams from the US military, a "disaster mortuary" crew and an unspecified number of cadaver dog units to assist in the search for human remains.

To the south, Woolsey Fire has blackened almost 94,000 acres and was also 30 percent contained as of Monday night, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CalFire).

Most of the 29 people killed in the Camp Fire were discovered in the smoldering ruins of their homes in Paradise - where a large, tattered American flag flew among the ashes - and in neighboring towns, as well as in the burned-out cars they were using to flee the blaze, officials said.

As parts of Butte County have been deemed safe, search teams and coroners have found more victims of the fire; the Butte County Sheriff's Office reported late Monday that workers had found 13 more people who had died from the fire, adding to the 29 who had already been located.

Expected high winds through Tuesday could only worsen the flames, authorities said, adding that the blaze isn't expected to be contained until November 30.

Game Of Thrones' Final Season Coming In April 2019
Game of Thrones fans have been waiting to find out when the final season of their favorite fantasy series will finally arrive. Along with the announcement, a teaser reel was shared, but it did not contain any new footage, unfortunately.

But the Woolsey Fire has hardly spared Hollywood's handsome people either, at least in material ways.

Some residents have took to social media to share what little was left of their own homes upon their return.

The maps: NASA's Advanced Rapid Imaging and Analysis team has created maps to show the areas most likely to be damaged by the fires.

It was 35 percent contained as of Tuesday. CalFire said 57,000 structures were still in harm's way from the Woolsey Fire. "A house can be rebuilt, but it's just memorabilia that was in there that we can never get back". "Firefighters actively fought the fire and worked aggressively".

As for what caused the two deadly fires, that remains under investigation.

The Camp Fire's death toll has grown in staggering leaps.

At least 42 deaths have been reported from the "Camp Fire" in Butte County and another two from the "Woolsey Fire", north of Los Angeles. Last year's Tubbs Fire in Napa and Sonoma counties was blamed for killing 22 people.
