Woosley Fire Burns 37000 Acres, Still Zero Percent Containment

Posted November 14, 2018

Some 500 miles (800 km) to the north, nine people were found dead in and around the Northern California town of Paradise, where more than 6,700 homes and businesses were burned down by the Camp Fire.

Two fatalities that occurred in the fire areas are under investigation, Los Angeles County Sheriff John Benedict said during a press conference Saturday morning.

The cause of the fire is not known, but Pacific Gas & Electric Company told state regulators it experienced an outage on an electrical transmission line near Paradise about 15 minutes before the blaze broke out.

In that tweet burst, Trump also said California wildfires "are being magnified & made so much worse by the bad environmental laws which aren't allowing massive amount of readily available water to be properly utilized".

Just hours after President Trump issued an emergency declaration to provide funds to help firefighters in California as they battle at least three major wildfires across the state, the president threatened to withhold the federal payments - citing the state's "gross mismanagement" of its forests. Fanned by strong winds, it has scorched 90,000 acres (36,400 hectares) and is only five percent contained, the California Fire Department (Cal Fire) said late Friday. "This is a very risky wind-driven fire". In Los Angeles and Ventura counties, a significant number of homes were destroyed or damaged, fire officials said.

There were also tributes from the wider community of actors , musicians, politicians, and comic book creators. More recently, he made numerous cameo appearances in Marvel movies released over the last two decades.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said Saturday 14 additional bodies were found, bringing the death toll to 23.

"I heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment".

"The wind came up, and it was just raining (embers), and I was just burning on my arms", he said.

The two bodies were found severely burned inside a vehicle on a long residential driveway in Malibu, Los Angeles County sheriff's Chief John Benedict said.

An estimated 52,000 people evacuated in Butte County, where Paradise is located.

A new chairman could conceivably rein in Musk or adjust Musk's role at the world's most drama-filled electric vehicle maker. Musk was required to pay the commision 20 million dollars which Tesla also accepted a 20 million dollar fine.

Calmer winds were in the forecast as the fire continued to burn toward the ocean, but gusts could still blow flames into homes, Cal Fire spokesman Lucas Spelman told KTLA.

Dozens of other people were reported missing. "I'm sitting here with many of you wondering if my home will burst into flames". CNN also reported that there have been 5 casualties as a result of the fire.

Tens of thousands of people are displaced from their homes as these fires continue to rage. Authorities said investigators believed the driver became disoriented and the auto was overcome by fire.

Two destructive wildfires also burned in Southern California, tearing through Malibu mansions and working-class suburban homes and killing two people. No permanent structures have been lost, shelter-in-place protocols remained in effect and all individuals on campus remain safe and are resting in relocation sites, including Payson Library and Tyler Campus Center, the school said.

The area burning in Southern California is in severe drought, US government analysts said. In Northern California, evacuees trapped in traffic abandoned their cars and ran with their children in tow as the Camp Fire quickly closed in.

Davante Adams is looking like a real star, but the same can not be said of the other receivers, at least not at the same level. Packers: WR Geronimo Allison , QB Tim Boyle , P Drew Kaser , CB Tony Brown , LB Korey Toomer , G Justin McCray , T Alex Light.

But fire officials say fire behaviour has changed statewide after years of drought and record summer heat that have left vegetation extremely crisp and dry.
