Strong Santa Ana winds fanned the Woolsey Fire over the weekend, Business Insider reported.

Eric Bush recounted the instant he first heard about his town being the target of the deadliest wildfires in California's history. Two people were killed in Malibu, and the fire destroyed at least 370 or so structures, authorities said.

The blaze has consumed around 85,500 acres, destroyed at least 177 buildings and was 15 percent contained, Cal Fire said.

One Calfire chart shared on Twitter by meteorologist Steve Bowen showed how the Camp Fire's destructive impact surpassed the previous record of 5,636 structures burned in the 2017 Tubbs Fire.

"The early moments of fires such as these are a critical time, when lives are lost, entire communities are wiped off the map and our members are injured or killed trying to stop these monstrous wildfires", Schaitberger said in a statement.

As of Monday morning, more than 200 people were still missing after the Camp Fire raged across a swath of northern California.

Yuba and Butte County Sheriff officers label a body bag after collecting the body of a victim of the Camp fire in Concow, California on November 11, 2018.

The new figures released Monday evening come as a wildfire continues to burn its way through scenic but drought-stricken canyonlands in and around Malibu, where celebrity homes have burned along with modest mobile homes.

Meanwhile, the Woolsey and Hill fires that ignited the same day in Southern California have blazed a path through Los Angeles and Ventura Counties, ravaging the celebrity enclaves like Malibu and Calabasas.

"I just started weeping", Kelly said.

Investigators have launched a probe targeting the state's two largest utilities to "assess the compliance of electric facilities with applicable rules and regulations in fire impacted areas", said California Public Utilities Commission spokeswoman Terrie Prosper on Monday. US President Donald Trump has blamed what he called poor forest management for the fires. "Winds are already blowing", Chief Daryl Osby of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said Sunday.

Discussing the afternoon after the shooting, Fox told NPR's David Greene, "We very quickly pivoted into an evacuation center for fire".

The death toll remained at two, a pair of adults found last week in a auto overtaken by flames who have not been identified. Firefighters working around the clock have gotten the blaze 25 percent contained. "Just remember things can be replaced but we can't", said one. Brown said federal and state governments could improve forest management, but said climate change with warmer temperatures was a bigger source of the fire hazard.
