Gerard Butler documents loss of home in California wildfires on social media

Brown said that the fires were "truly a tragedy" and hopes everyone pulls together.

Trump has declared a state of emergency in California.

Brown has repeatedly blamed climate change for fires and other natural disasters in California - despite pushback from otherwise sympathetic scientists, who have accused the governor in the past of "noble-cause corruption". Brown said federal and state governments must do more forest management but that climate change is the greater source of the problem.

He wrote: "Mr President, while people's homes are burning, while lives are being lost & while firefighters are risking their lives, California needs words of support & encouragement, not threats or finger pointing & accusations".

Around Malibu, more than 3000 firefighters from around California and neighbouring USA states worked with aircraft, including 19 helicopters and three DC-10 tanker plane, to save lives and billions of dollars of property.

Firefighters battling the so-called Camp fire with shovels and bulldozers, flame retardants and hoses expected wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour overnight Sunday.

The so-called Camp Fire in the northern part of the state has claimed at least 29 lives since it broke out on Thursday. Fire officials say the blaze is 10 percent contained. Osby noted that a November 1993 wildfire in Malibu destroyed more than 270 homes and said he would not be surprised if the total from the current fire would be higher.

There were tiny signs of some sense of order returning to Paradise on Monday and also anonymous gestures meant to rally the spirits of firefighters who have worked in an ash-covered wasteland for days.

The appeal came a day after Mr Trump threatened to cut funding for California, blaming the fires on poor forest management.

The flames incinerated most of Paradise, Calif., destroying 6,453 homes and another 260 commercial structures, according to The Associated Press.

In Butte County, where the Camp Fire has charred 100,000 acres, Rice said he watched Saturday as a firefighter gave an evacuee his own extra trousers and shirt to wear.

Public safety officials toured the Paradise area to begin discussing the recovery process.

"Most of the residential [area] is gone".

"This entire community is wiped out", he said.

Rice agreed. "Malibu is not a logged area", he said.

"Anytime you're a firefighter and your town burns down, there's a lot of feelings and a lot of guilt and a lot of concern about both what happened and what the future looks like", he said. This is devastating to so many people.

She and her brother called shelters, hospitals, the sheriff's department and the coroner's office.

Meanwhile, a nurse has revealed how she thought she was going to die when her auto was engulfed in flames as she tried to drive to safety.

"I'm also under a dark emotional cloud". Your mother's somewhere and you don't know where she's at.

Kim Kardashian posted a message for her fans ensuring that she and her family is safe.

Three fires, two in the south and one in the north, have forced over a quarter of a million people who were in harm's way to evacuate from their homes.

But officials warned against complacency, with winds of up to 70mph (112km/h) expected over the coming days.
