California firefighters blast back at Trump

April FrancisНоя 13, 2018

At least 42 people were confirmed dead in the wildfire that turned the Northern California town of Paradise and outlying areas into hell on earth, making it the deadliest blaze in state history.

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

In Northern California, Sheriff Honea said the devastation was so complete in some neighbourhoods that "it's very hard to determine whether or not there may be human remains there".

"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.

It is the largest of several infernos that have sent a quarter of a million people fleeing their homes across the tinder-dry state, with winds of up to 100kph fanning the fast-moving flames.

Thirteen more bodies have been recovered in California, bringing the death toll in the USA state's deadliest wildfire to 42, officials say.

At least 25 people have died in two of the fires.

Brown asked Trump on Sunday to declare the fires a major disaster, a move that would allow more federal resources to flow to California to help with relief and recovery. The containment figures on both the campfire and Woosley fire still very low at the moment.

"I was planning on maybe moving out of state, or into southern California..."

"I'm still shaking. Every time I talk about it", he said.

All told, more 8,000 firefighters battled wildfires that scorched at least 400 square miles (1,040 square kilometers) of the state, with the flames feeding on dry brush and driven by winds that had a blowtorch effect.

The cause of the northern California fire is still under investigation.

By early afternoon, one of the two black hearses stationed in Paradise had picked up another set of remains.

Butler shared a photo on Instagram of the burnt remains of his Malibu home and thanked the Los Angeles Fire Department for their service. "And this new abnormal will continue, certainly in the next 10 to 15 to 20 years", California Governor Jerry Brown said Sunday in a stark warning over the likely damaging effects of climate change.

The fire has absolutely devastated the city of Paradise, nearly entirely levelling it, leaving thousands of homes and businesses in ruins.

Drought, warmer weather attributed to climate change, and the building of homes deeper into forests have led to longer and more destructive wildfire seasons in California.

Cyrus said on Twitter that she was "completely devastated" by the fires affecting her community.

"I still haven't heard anything", said Laurie Teague, who was looking for her 80-year-old stepfather, Herb Alderman.
