  • Climate change not only boosts the likelihood of wildfires but their intensity as well

So far, 23 people have reportedly been killed by the blazes.

The Scottish star, well-known for his roles in the movies London Has Fallen and 300, has tweeted a photo of the burnt out shell of his Malibu home.

MALIBU: The "Woolsey Fire" (top) burns on Sunday.

But he has now extended his sympathies to those affected. "It was like a firestorm, it was roaring", he told CNN affiliate KABC, referring to the Woolsey Fire.

Information on Camp Fire affecting Butte County can be found on CA.gov.

Another fire swept into the affluent southern beach resort of Malibu on Friday and had doubled in size by Saturday.

The Kardashians and Will Smith are among the celebrities who fled their homes for safety.

The Camp Fire has the grisly distinction of matching the 1933 Griffith Park disaster in Los Angeles - until now the single deadliest wildfire on record, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire).

A quarter of a million people are under evacuation orders. The Camp Fire has only grown since then.

For an immediate example, the Camp fire in the north, which devastated Paradise, has diverted resources that drier areas of southern California could once rely on for backup. The flames moved so fast that some had to abandon their cars and escape the town on foot.

About 228 people are still unaccounted for, Honea said, while another 137 people have been located after friends or relatives reported being unable to contact them.

The painstaking process of finding the missing and identifying the dead is challenging, with some of the bodies recovered burned beyond recognition.

Images from Paradise have showed the sky filled with acrid smoke, nearly blotting out the sun.

The Hill Fire has covered 4,531 acres and is 70 percent contained.

Where is the Woolsey Fire?

"SpcaLA is headed to a staging area in Thousand Oaks, where DART members will report to Los Angeles County Incident Command".

The flames raced from the Conejo Valley to the Pacific Ocean, across Highway 101 and the Santa Monica mountains, at speeds that shocked veteran fire officials.

The first firefighter on the scene at 6:43 a.m. recognized the danger and ordered the evacuation of the nearby community of Pulga.

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

The firefighters are among 200 firefighters from across Texas being deployed to California. They said fires could spread quickly and unexpectedly. They are going to blow for the next three days.

You know, so, whatever help you can get.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby stressed there were numerous hotspots and plenty of fuel that had not yet burned, but at sunset he said there had been huge successes despite "a very challenging day". "Get Smart!" Trump said on Twitter.

The president has previously blamed Californian officials for wildfires and threatened to withhold federal funding. "Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests".

The Faces front man was not the only celebrity to attack the president, singer Katy Perry called Trump's tweet "absolutely heartless" adding: "There aren't even politics involved". Studies have said wildfires often start due to extremely dry conditions, such as droughts that are spurred by climate change.

The region has grappled with serious wildfires in recent years, including the worst in the state's history - the Mendocino fire in 2018.
