More than 200 Texas firefighters, including some from the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, have answered the call to assist in the deadly California wildfires.

Statewide the number of dead stood at 31, including two victims in Southern California, from wildfires raging at both ends of the state.

Ten search teams were working in Paradise - a town of 27,000 that was largely incinerated last week - and in surrounding communities in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

In some cases, all that remains is charred fragments of bone and investigators have been using wire baskets to sift and sort them.

The search for bodies is continuing.

Over 8,000 firefighters have been tackling the massive blaze, which reportedly covers around 397 square miles. She encouraged people to aid in relief efforts by donating money and supplies to organizations like California's Wildfire Relief Fund and the Red Cross.

Trump, a Republican who has often criticised Democrat-led California on a variety of issues including immigration enforcement, blamed poor forest management by the state for the infernos.

"And those who deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedies that we're now witnessing, and will continue to witness in the coming years", he said.

Entire neighbourhoods were levelled, destroying more than 6700 buildings, nearly all of them homes, and the business district was destroyed by a blaze that threatened to explode again with the same fury that largely incinerated the foothill town. Two more have perished near Malibu in the south of the state.

Firefighters on Sunday managed to contain flare-ups generated by high winds in canyons along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and Bell Canyon in Ventura County, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said.

His home in Sylmar, Calif., in the San Fernando Valley, is about 12 kilometres from West Hills, one of the areas evacuated due to the Woolsey fire that is threatening homes north of Los Angeles. The sheriff's office in the stricken northern county set up a missing-persons call centre to help connect people.

The death toll for the recent wildfires in Northern and Southern California jumped to 42 as of Monday evening.

The California Public Utilities Commission is investigating what sparked the latest blazes - amid reports electrical companies may have suffered malfunctions near the sources shortly before the fires began.

Malibu celebrities and mobile-home dwellers in nearby mountains were slowly learning whether their homes had been spared or reduced to ash.

But there were tiny signs of some sense of order returning to Paradise and anonymous gestures meant to rally the spirits of firefighters who have worked in a burned-over wasteland for days. The Hill fire was 75% contained as of Sunday night.

Its death toll now equals that of the Griffith Park Fire in 1933, the deadliest wildfire on record in California.

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.
