A home burns as the Camp Fire rages through Paradise Calif. on Thursday Nov. 8 2018

The Woosley Fire burns in Malibu, California, on Friday. Rice reminded the president that wildfires are not unique to forests, and that they're sparked in populated areas and open fields fueled by vegetation, high winds, low humidity and geography.

The California fire season normally begins in late spring and lasts through summer.

Video of the inferno taken by Paradise resident Brynn Parrott Chatfield on Thursday shows the horror of the fire.

The victims were all found in vehicles that were torched by the fast-moving blaze in the Butte County town of Paradise, according to the Butte County Sheriff's Office. Firefighters carried people from homes and put them in empty seats of their neighbors' cars, said Carol Napoli, 74. Over the course of the day, evacuation orders were issued in Paradise, Concow, and Pulga, towns about 200 miles north of San Francisco. Cal are urban interface fires and have NOTHING to do with forest management.

Winds could gust as high as 30 to 40 miles per hour on Sunday, officials said. "Just good American families losing their homes as you tweet, evacuating into shelters".

The Camp Fire in Northern California has destroyed 6,500 homes, while two people were killed by the Woolsey Fire in the south of the state where homes were under evacuation orders, including the entire city of Malibu, home to Hollywood stars.

The bodies of two people have been discovered in Malibu but it is unclear whether their deaths were caused by fire. We're probably going to sleep in the auto tonight.

The Woolsey Fire broke out on Thursday and quickly jumped the 101 Freeway toward Malibu. Crews had cut containment lines around about 20 percent of the blaze.

It sent thousands fleeing after mandatory evacuations in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
