As fires continued to rage at both ends of California, officials released another cruel statistic: six more dead in a shot in northern California were extinct by fire and raised the death penalty there to 29. It matched California’s record of death in a single fire .
Another 228 remains unconfirmed for as crews intensified the search for bodies and missing people. Two people were killed in a fire in southern California.

1; a city of 27,000 burned extensively last week and in surrounding communities in the Sierra Nevada hills. Authorities called into a DNA lab and anthropological groups to help identify victims.
Over the country, 150,000 were displaced, as more than 8,000 firefighters fought with fires that have burned 400 square kilometers (1,040 square kilometers) with outside crews continuing to arrive. Whipping winds and dry-dry conditions threaten more areas during the rest of the week, the fire department warned.
“This is truly a tragedy that all California can understand and respond to,” said Gothenburg Jerry Brown at a press conference. “It’s time to pull together and work through these tragedies.”
Brown, who has explained a state situation, said that California requests help from the Trump administration. President Donald Trump has blamed “poor” forest management for the fires. Brown said that federal and state governments need to do more forest management but that climate change is the greater source of the problem.

“And those who deny it definitely contribute to the tragedies that we now witness and will continue to witness in the next few years,” he said.
Drought and warmer weather attributable to climate change and the construction of dwellings deeper in forests has led to longer and more destructive fireplace seasons in California. While California officially emerged from a five-year drought last year, much of the northern two-thirds of the state is abnormally dry.
Firefighters fighting fire with shovels and bulldozers, fire protection and hose anticipated winds up to 40 km / h 64 km / h) overnight on Sunday.
In southern California firefighters return a new windmill on Sunday and the fire’s growth and destruction are believed to have been largely stopped. Malibu celebrities and builders in nearby mountains learned slowly if their homes had been saved or reduced to ashes. Two people were killed and the fire had destroyed almost 180 structures.

Los Angeles County Fire Department Daryl Osby stressed that there were many hotspots and lots of fuel that had not yet been burned, but at sunset he said it had been great success despite “a very challenging day”.
Celebrities whose coastal areas were injured or destroyed in a southern California wild boar or forced to escape from the flames expressed sympathy and solidarity with lesser-known people injured worse by the fatalities of the state and gave their gratitude to firemen who kept them safe. Actor Gerard Butler told Instagram that his Malibu home was “halfway away” and added that he was “inspired as always by the courage, the spirit and the victims of firefighters.”
Flames also defeated the thousand Oaks, southern California in mourning over the 12-person massacre in a landslide shooting show on Wednesday night.
In northern California, where more than 6,700 buildings have been destroyed, the extent of the devastation began to level up as the fire broke down.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the county consulted teams of anthropologists because in some cases investigators have been able to recover only bone and bone fragments.
In some neighborhoods, “it is very difficult to determine if there can be human beings there,” said Honea.
Public Security Officers Toured the Paradise Area to begin discussing the recovery process. Much of what does the city’s function is gone.
“Paradise was literally dried off the map,” said Tim Aboudara, a representative of the International Association of Fire Fighters. He said that at least 36 firefighters dropped their own homes, most in paradise.

“When you’re a firefighter and your city is burning down, there are many feelings and lots of guilt and a lot of worry about what happened and what the future looks like,” he said. “Every story we heard came through, like” I wish I could have done more, What should happen to our society, where should my children go to school? “”
Others continued the desperate search for friends or relatives, calling to evacuation centers, hospitals, police and coronary offices.
Sol Bechtold drove from shelter to shelter and was looking for his mother, Joanne Caddy, a 75-year-old widow whose house burned down with the rest of her neighborhood in Magalia, just north of Paradise. She lived alone and did not drive.
As he drove through the smoke and drew another protection, he said, “I’m also under a dark sense of cloud. Your mother is somewhere and you do not know where she is at. You do not know if she’s sure.”

The 29 dead in northern California matched the deadliest single fire on record, a 1933 girl in the Griffith Park in Los Angeles, but a series of fires in northern California wineland last fall killed 44 people and destroyed more than 5000 homes. 19659005] Firemen made progress on the fan and held 25 percent on Sunday, but they fell against gusty winds predicted on Monday morning that could spark “explosive fire behavior,” said Bill Murphy, California spokesman for forestry and fire protection. 19659005] Firefighters serve potentially more fires in southern California’s inland region, as large winds and critical dry conditions are expected to continue until next week.
“We’re really just in the middle of this long-lasting weather event, this firesight,” said Cal Fire Chief Ken Pimlott.

He said officials moved resources and prepared for the “next set of fires” that winds are expected to retrieve. The boss warned that the fire conditions will continue until the dried condition looks rain.
“We are here in long distance,” said Pimlott.
