California wildfires worsen: Hollywood celebrities feel homes; 9 dead in Paradise town

More than 200,000 residents evacuated as Woolsey fire rages out of control

In less than two days, the Hill and Woolsey fires had destroyed more than 150 homes and prompted evacuation orders for more than 250,000 people, fire officials said. While in Paris to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, Trump took to Twitter and claimed the state's environmental management was "so poor" he may withhold federal payments if no remedy is found.

In northern California, a wildfire killed some in their cars as they tried to flee the racing flames.

"This event was the worst-case scenario".

The Butte County Sheriff's Office said the victims were located in the town of Paradise, whose 26,000 residents were told to flee the fire's path on Thursday. "Regrettably, not everybody made it out". Ventura County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said some firefighters were "literally pulling people out of burning homes".

Fire burned in famously ritzy coastal spots like Malibu, where Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Guillermo del Toro and Martin Sheen were among those forced out of their homes amid a citywide evacuation order.

The fire broke out near Thousand Oaks, an area about 40 miles (64km) north-west of central Los Angeles where an attacker killed 12 people on Wednesday, prompting the evacuation of 75,000 homes.

Five people of the dead were found in cars in a town that was destroyed by the Camp Fire in the state's north.

Two people have died in Southern California fires, bringing the death toll from massive blazes raging across the state to 11, according to authorities.

The flames descended on Paradise so quickly that many people were forced to abandon their cars and run for their lives down the sole road through the mountain town.

"We want to see Paradise be Paradise again".

Paradise Mayor Jody Jones said 80 to 90% of homes in residential neighborhoods are gone following the Camp Fire.

On their website, Salvation Army says that they responded to Paradise with a small team of volunteers on November 8, but now have "multiple Emergency Disaster Service teams to provide meals at additional sites in Butte County for individuals affected by the Camp Fire".

Trump, a Republican, has previously blamed California officials for fires and threatened to withhold funding, saying the state should do more to remove rotten trees and other debris that fuel blazes.

In southern California, authorities said around 105,000 people had been evacuated.

Experts say the forests now burning have up to 25 times the density of healthy forests, adding to fire risks. "They had us in like a caravan", Napoli said.

"There are millions and millions and millions of dollars going into fighting fires", Bonnicksen said, "but there are not millions and millions and millions of dollars going into preventing the fires".

Driven by 50- to 60-mph winds, the flames jumped south across the 101 Freeway in the Liberty Canyon area early Friday, sending it on a course through Malibu and its exclusive celebrity enclaves.

SoCal Edison said the report was submitted out of an abundance of caution although there was no indication from fire officials that its equipment may have been involved.
