California wildfires: At least 42 are killed in deadliest blaze

Celebs Push Back at Donald Trump's 'Heartless&apos Tweet About California Wildfires

The devastation is complete in Paradise, California, where a wildfire tore through town and destroyed everything, killing at least 29 and destroying so many houses it's already the most destructive fire on record in the state.

In Northern California, where more than 6,700 buildings have been destroyed in the blaze that obliterated Paradise, firefighters contended with wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour (64 kph) overnight, the fire jumping 300 feet across Lake Oroville.

The fire that began Thursday morning and devastated the town of Paradise now matches the 1933 Griffith Park Fire in Los Angeles as the state's cruelest in human cost.

The two bodies were found severely burned inside a auto on a long residential driveway in Malibu, Los Angeles County sheriff's Chief John Benedict said.

"In some cases, the fire burned so intensely that it burned everything to the ground, and in some cases, it melted the metal", Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told reporters on Sunday. With more than 200 people still unaccounted for, families who are desperate for answers are posting pictures of their loved ones online and on message boards at shelters. "I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another", he wrote.

It is the largest of several infernos that have sent a quarter of a million people fleeing their homes across the tinder-dry state, with winds of up to 100kph fanning the fast-moving flames.

Robin Thicke's Malibu home burned down entirely, according to his representative. For those on the grim search, no cars in the driveway is good, one auto a little more ominous and multiple burned-out vehicles equals a call for extra vigilance.

The death toll in Northern California has risen to 42, as firefighters continue to battle the so-called Camp Fire, while the state-wide death toll has reached 44. "My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that's all that matters right now".

While premieres shed their glitz, there were few reports of industry production affected by the wildfire that has killed two and destroyed more than 400 homes.

The Woolsey Fire in Southern California burnt 85,500 acres and destroyed 177 structures.

The two severely burned bodies were discovered in a driveway in Malibu, where residents forced from their homes included Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Martin Sheen.

"My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong", she wrote. Brown told a press briefing that federal and state governments must do more forest management but said that's not the source of the problem.

More than 8,000 firefighters battled three large wildfires burning across almost 400 square miles in Northern and Southern California yesterday, with out-of-state crews continuing to arrive as gusty, blowtorch winds started to return.
