Two men arrested for looting California fire station during wildfires

Mr Trump was visiting a town in California - which had been devastated by the recent wildfires - and told reporters on Saturday that wildfires were managed better in Finland because people "spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things".

People in Finland are having a lot of fun raking leaves on social media after President Donald Trump said residents of the Scandinavian nation regularly rake its wooded areas to prevent forest fires.

Trump traveled to the Malibu area of Southern California later on November 17 to see the effects of the "Woolsey Fire", which killed three people and burned more than 98,000 acres.

"This is very sad", Trump said after surveying the remains of Paradise.

Democratic Governor Jerry Brown said in an interview on CBS' "Face the Nation" airing Sunday that the Republican president has "got our back" and has pledged to continue to help.

"As much as I wish that we could get through all of this before the rains come, I don't know if that's possible", the sheriff said.

The US President has been critical of prevention measures in California in the wake of devastating wildfires there.

In Paradise, home to almost 27,000 people before the Camp Fire struck, two forensic anthropologists for the University of Nevada, Reno, were helping firefighters on Saturday sort through the wreckage at a mobile home park for senior citizens.

Jim Acosta is 'Kind of a Big Deal' or Something
Acosta's press credentials were revoked after he and President Trump verbally sparred at a press conference this month. The White House removed Acosta's hard pass for access to the White House over the incident.

The president initially blamed state officials for poor forest management in exacerbating the fires and threatened to cut off federal funding. Pope Francis has prayed for victims of California's wildfires and freezing weather on the US East Coast.

The report said fire activity "ranged from minimal to moderate" overnight. "It's like total devastation", Trump said as he stood amid the ruins of Paradise.

He also suggested California's severe wildfires will make believers of even the most ardent climate change skeptics "in less than five years", and that those living near forests might need to build underground shelters to protect them from fires.

Northern California's Camp Fire has destroyed about 10,500 homes and torched 233 square miles (603 square kilometres).

As of Friday, the only missing mountain lion was one dubbed P-74, a young male born past year. It is 55 percent contained.

He added: "I think people have to see this really to understand it".

In Southern California, Trump also met briefly at an airport hangar with families and first responders touched by the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks more than a week ago.
