"I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones", she wrote.

PG&E Corp, which operates in northern California, and Edison International, the owner of Southern California Edison Company, have reported to regulators that they experienced problems with transmission lines or substations in areas where fires were reported, just before or close to the time they started.

The Camp fire up north was 35 percent contained, Cal Fire officials said Tuesday.

This fire has also scorched more than 117,000 acres of Northern California and destroyed more than 7,000 structures.

Paradise, which is home to many retirees and has experienced an unusually dry fall, was virtually razed to the ground by the fast-moving "Camp Fire" blaze.

Butte County has seen less than an inch of rainfall in more than 30 weeks.

The fire tore across 125,000 acres leaving at least 6,453 homes and 260 commercial buildings in its wake, numbers that are expected to rise as the damage is surveyed.

The new video from ABC7 show the Peak Fire burning right up to the edge of a busy Highway 118 in Ventura County, forcing passing motorists to drive in lanes as far from the highway shoulder as possible while firefighters battled the blaze.

Nemanja Vidic: I want to manage Manchester United in the future
To nearly every observer at the Etihad Stadium, the game was controlled by City but the Manchester United manager saw things differently.

"We're fine, we got very, very lucky". "I'm not feeling almost the amount of wind and it's a little bit cooler this morning".

President Trump has approved an expedited request for a disaster declaration for the California fires, saying he wanted "to respond quickly in order to alleviate some of the incredible suffering going on".

Countless homes and businesses have been destroyed and at least 44 people have died in the fires that broke out last week, despite the tireless efforts of thousands of firefighters across the state. Some 52,000 residents have been forced to evacuate.

People have been using social media to share images of their lost animals around the internet, in the hope of finding them.

The sheriff said he also has requested three portable morgue teams from the US military, a "disaster mortuary" crew and an unspecified number of cadaver dog units to assist in the search for human remains.

Over the weekend, the "Woolsey Fire" engulfed parts of Thousand Oaks, where a Marine Corps veteran shot dead 12 people in a country music bar on Wednesday.

Among those who lost their homes was the pop star Miley Cyrus, who tweeted that her "house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong".
