  • Embers are blown by strong winds roaring sound during the Woolsey Fire on Nov. 9 2018 in Malibu

In Southern California, where the Woolsey Fire scorched 83,275 acres, the blaze was only 10 per cent contained.

In Paradise, a town of 27,000 people roughly 350 kilometres north of San Francisco, more than 6,700 structures have been destroyed by the flames.

Lady Gaga, Martin Sheen and Kim Kardashian West were among the celebrities who joined thousands of others in evacuating from the affluent coastal city that is as well-known as its residents. Despite earlier news reports, including by Reuters, that the fire had destroyed the home of Caitlyn Jenner, the transgender advocate and former athlete, her publicist said on Sunday that it had survived. The severely burned bodies were discovered in a auto on a long residential driveway on a stretch of Mulholland Highway in Malibu, where most of the surrounding structures had burned.

Actress Camille Grammer Meyer, who stars in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was another celebrity who lost her home to the fire.

Alyssa Milano, who on Saturday tweeted that her house was "in jeopardy" but she had gotten needed help to evacuate her horses and that her children were safe, was among the lucky ones. "It hasn't burned in decades and I knew we didn't stand a chance". But she said she always feared a wildfire since she moved there 15 years ago, especially during recent years in which there's been nearly no rain. He had seen a neighbor's home intact in a TV news aerial shot and hoped his home had survived.

Earlier this year, wildfires raged through huge portions of California, claiming homes, businesses, and lives in the process.

Butler posted photos and videos as he returned to his home to find it had largely been reduced to ashes.

During a press conference to update on the fires plaguing Southern California, officials addressed the three fires raging on: the Camp Fire in Butte County as well as the Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire in Ventura County.

Santa Ana winds, produced by surface high pressure over the Great Basin squeezing air down through canyons and passes in Southern California's mountain ranges, are common in the fall and have a long history of fanning destructive wildfires in the region. While California officially emerged from a five-year drought last year, much of the northern two-thirds of the state is abnormally dry.

State officials have blamed climate change and said numerous burn areas have been in federally managed lands. In response to the fire, Trump wrote: "There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor".
