Local firefighters arrive in California as death toll from wildfires grows

Neil Young and Donald Trump

"Everywhere the cars were on fire and I didn't see anybody walking and all I could think of is there were people in those cars", Wilken said.

"More than 4,000 are fighting the Camp and Woolsey Fires in California that have burned over 170,000 acres", Trump tweeted.

Additionally, The New York Times names two California-specific charities accepting donations: California Community Foundation's Wildfire Relief Fund, which has offered aid to those affected by wildfires for 15 years, and California Fire Foundation, which is "on the ground distributing financial assistance to people who have lost everything in the fires".

"There were cars behind, cars in front and fire on both sides", Kester said.

Officials said they did not know how many people were missing four days after the fire swept over the town of 27,000 and practically wiped it off the map with flames so fierce that authorities brought in a mobile DNA lab and forensic anthropologists to help identify the dead.

In southern California, the Woolsey Fire has scorched at least 85,500 acres and destroyed 177 structures.

Fire officials say the huge fire, which stretches from north of Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean, is only 30 percent contained - although that is significant progress from only a few days earlier.

"These are extreme conditions".

Later in the day November 10, the president encouraged residents to heed evacuation orders, and wrote: "Our hearts are with those fighting the fires". At least two people have died in that fire, according to officials from the statewide agency Cal Fire. Rasmussen said the return was emotional and he gasped as he rounded corners on the road home that revealed the extent of damage with powerlines down and homes gone. He posted a photo of what his residence was like before the fire.

The couple and their 25-year-old son, Colin, used hoses, buckets of water and chain saws to battle flames and cut back brush as the fire kept coming to life. "And that's what hurts, those kinds of things hurt because you can't replace that".

"The California Fire Fighters, FEMA and First Responders are wonderful and very fearless", Trump wrote on Monday. Edison International, the owner of Southern California Edison Company, slumped 11 percent, leaving its stock market value $5 billion lower since Thursday when the fires broke out.

California Gov. Jerry Brown also fact-checked Trump's false claim during a press conference Sunday, announcing that he had requested a major disaster declaration from the White House. Trump, a Republican who has often criticized Democrat-led California on a variety of issues including immigration enforcement, blamed poor forest management by the state for the infernos.

Thousands of firefighters were still searching for bodies among the smouldering ruins, and more than 200 people remained unaccounted for.
