Rock Legend Neil Young Scorches 'So-Called President' Trump Over Wildfires

Molten aluminum has flowed from a car that burned in front of one of at least 20 homes destroyed just on Windermere Drive in the Point Dume area of Malibu Calif. Saturday Nov. 10 2018. Known as the Woolsey Fire it has consumed thousands of acres and

Crews pushed forward to achieve 25 per cent containment of the Camp Fire in northern California, which had burned 111,000 acres (45,000 hectares) at the edge of the Plumas National Forest, according to Cal Fire's website.

- Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., pushed back against President Trump's threat to block federal aid to California as wildfires continue to ravage large swaths of the state, arguing that the president's tweet sent the wrong message.

"Today was very challenging, but we've had huge successes", Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby told reporters on Sunday afternoon. Nine bodies were found in the immediate aftermath of the destruction, and the remains of another 14 were discovered in later searches. For some of the firefighters, this will be the second year in a row they will be apart from family at Thanksgiving to help fight fires in California. In addition to killing two people, the fire threatened almost 60,000 structures and forced the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of residents, officials said.

Neil Young saw his Malibu home consumed in the current spate of California fires, then slammed President Donald Trump for his inactivity over the state of emergency. Southern California Fires Force Evacuation of 75,000 Homes.

The air-masses blowing across the western U.S. deserts including Death Valley toward the coast are expected to bring the sustained high winds at least through Tuesday, he said.

It is estimated that more than 180 homes have perished in the disaster, which threatens Calabasas, Malibu, Agoura, Topanga, Hidden Hills, and West Hills. "Heartbreaking time across California", wrote the "300" actor, including a photo of himself in front of a charred home and vehicle.

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

Firefighters took advantage of a brief calm overnight to make headway against the multiple blazes, but conditions were expected to be hellish on Sunday with winds reaching as high as 70 miles (110 kilometers) an hour.

The Camp fire - the most destructive fire in state history and one of the deadliest - virtually burned the town of Paradise to the ground, destroying thousands of homes and structures.

Meteorologist David Gomberg told the Los Angeles Times newspaper that fire tornadoes were possible.

Airplanes and helicopters swooped low over hills and canyons to drop loads of fire retardant and water. They said fires could spread quickly and unexpectedly.

Rice also said Trump's assertion that California's forest management policies are to blame "is dangerously wrong".

State Sen. Henry Stern, a Democrat from Los Angeles, said fires aren't about politics or jurisdictions.

On Sunday, during a trip to France, he tweeted: "With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California".

Later Saturday, Mr. Trump struck a more sympathetic tone on the unfolding crisis in California, praising the firefighters and offering condolences to the victims.
