In a post on his website, singer Neil Young stated that he had just lost "another" home to a California fire.

The Hill and Woolsey fires have cut through thousands of acres (over 83,000 at last count) of Los Angeles and Ventura County, while the Camp Fire in Northern California has become the third deadliest and most destructive fire in state history.

"Fires do not respect politics, though, so I would beg the President to pursue a major disaster declaration and not make this a political incident", Stern said.

"The courageous firefighters were able to save my cars and personal items recovered from my home".

California is now being ravaged by one of the worst fires the state has ever seen.

"Our focus is on the Californians impacted by these fires and the first responders and firefighters working around the clock to save lives and property - not on the president's inane and uninformed tweets", Brown's Press Secretary Evan Westrup said in a statement Sunday.

Thicke, 41, said on Instagram that he, his girlfriend and his two kids were safe.

California Governor Jerry Brown called out those who deny climate change today, accusing them of "contributing" to the deaths caused by the on-going wildfires in California. More than 30 Butte County Sheriff's deputies reported for duty despite losing their homes, the news station reported. "In those cases, it is possible the temperatures were high enough to completely consume the body".

The state fire agency said Monday that the fire had grown to 177 square miles (303 square kilometers) and was 25 percent contained.

Many others including Orlando Bloom, Alyssa Milano, Lady Gaga, Rainn Wilson and fashion designer Donna Karan were among evacuees.
