California wildfire leaves town in ruins, thousands flee

The wildfires burning across California have now killed 11 people in total, including nine found dead in a massive fire in northern California that destroyed the town of Paradise.

"This event was the worst-case scenario".

The death toll in the Camp Fire in Northern California has risen to 23 with the discovery Saturday of 14 more sets of remains, Butte County Sheriff and Coroner Kory Honea told reporters. "Regrettably, not everybody made it out".

"It was just a wall of fire on each side of us, and we could hardly see the road in front of us".

Evacuations were ordered for all communities south of US 101, including the entire city of Malibu, where the population of about 13,000 includes many celebrities.

The bodies of two people were discovered in Malibu but it was too early to determine if they died from fire or another cause, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

The blaze had covered 100,000 acres and was 20-percent contained by Saturday morning.

Trump blasted California's environmental management as the wildfires continued to rage across the state. "We do not want any more lives lost".

Given the fires' rapid movement and volatile conditions, The Los Angeles Times is maintaining a live feed with the most current data available.

California Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency to provide assistance to the fire-hit areas.

Another fire, called Hill Fire, measured a little more than 4,500 acres on Saturday.

More than 2,000 firefighters were deployed to battle the fire.

Draper Fire Chief Clint Smith said he's not entirely sure what the four firefighters and one engine will be doing in California, but he said they wouldn't let the summer's tragedy interfere with their task, even if it is weighing on them.

Of the nine confirmed fatalities, five were found inside cars that were overwhelmed by flames, three outside residences, and one inside a home, facebook.com/bcsonews/photos/pb.119221578228129. "Most of them were immobile with walkers, or spouses that were bed-ridden, so we were trying to get additional units to come and try and help us, just taking as many as we could", he said, describing the community as having "a lot of elderly, a lot of immobile people, some low-income with no vehicles".

Kim Kardashian West, who was evacuated from the home she shares with her husband Kanye West in the Hidden Hills area of northwest of Los Angeles, posted a picture with her baby niece and told Instagram users: "We are all safe and that's all that matters". On Friday, it moved over the Santa Monica Mountains toward Malibu, where flames driven by hot Santa Ana winds gusting up to 50 miles per hour raced down hillsides and through canyons toward multi-million dollar homes.

Early on Saturday, flames were nearing Malibu's Pepperdine University, a private residential college with 7,700 students, where many remained sheltered on the main campus.

People reported much of the community of 30,000 people has gone up in flames, including homes, supermarkets, businesses, restaurants, schools and a retirement centre.
