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.

Among those forced to flee were celebrities including Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian, who said on Twitter that flames had damaged the home she shares in nearby Calabasas with Kanye West. "There are very few homes still standing and we've been in multiple different neighborhoods this afternoon". All we can do is pray together & for each other.
Below are maps, zoomed in, of where the Woolsey Fire reached the coastal areas, and of the northern section of the fire.
"I'm waiting to hear the fate of my home. It's like we're all walking around kind of in a trance". The Hill Fire was 25% contained.
Sky News US correspondent Greg Milam, who is in Los Angeles, said: "What's driving this fire is the Santa Ana winds".
Cher wrote on Twitter that she was anxious about her house "but there is nothing I can do". "I can't bear the thought of there being no Malibu".
The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation: The foundation is also housing evacuated animals and is accepting donations. "The animals that were relocated have been safely moved back to their habitats and are doing well", the zoo said.
