Fueled by high winds and low humidity the Camp Fire ripped through the town of Paradise charring 105,000 acres, killed 23 people and has destroyed over 6,700 homes and businesses.

Another 35 people were reported missing, McLean said.

The Paradise fire is one of three burning across more than 1,000 square kilometres of the Golden State.

Firefighters said their goal on Sunday was to continue mopping up the fire and reducing hazards in the towns of Magalia and Paradise.

Meanwhile, wildfires also raged in Southern California, including the town of Thousand Oaks, where a gunman days earlier killed a dozen people at a local bar.

"This weighs heavy on all of us", Honea said.

It has burned more than 109,000 acres (44,000 hectares) and is almost 25% contained, fire officials said. He said that more than 200 people were still unaccounted for.

According to Cal Fire, the fire has grown into 100,000 acres and was 20 percent contained by Saturday morning.

But Cal Fire spokesman Bill Murphy warned that gusty winds predicted into Monday morning could spark "explosive fire behavior". Hundreds of miles to the south, at least two people died in the Woolsey conflagration threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

"Welcome to my home in Malibu", the star said in the footage, in which he surveys the charred remains of his property. 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.

At the briefing, fire commanders described the fire jumping the Feather River at one point Saturday night on the eastern edge of the fire line, and said crews had to protect homes in a rural area northeast of Oroville.

About 300,000 people statewide were under evacuation orders, majority in Southern California.

Gov. Jerry Brown said he is requesting a major-disaster declaration from President Donald Trump that would make victims eligible for crisis counseling, housing and unemployment help, and legal aid.

Search teams scoured the carnage of California's most destructive ever wildfire for victims on Sunday.

Hot dry winds expected to blow until Tuesday whipped up the flames and heightened the urgency of evacuation orders, officials said.

"Returned to my house in Malibu after evacuating", he captioned an image of himself at the ruble.

Both were wearing heavy green jackets, jeans, boots and face masks around their necks. Some cried when they saw nothing was left. Firefighters are trying to battle two separate fires from raging through upscale homes and neighborhoods. He found his home leveled - a large metal safe and pipes from his septic system the only recognizable traces.

"The fact of the matter is if you look at the state of California, climate challenge is happening statewide", Osby said, adding that "it is going to be here for the foreseeable future". "Typically we would rely on our partners to the north to come. It doesn't seems like it is getting worse right now, I just pray the winds are in our favor", Kardashian West said.
