Thousands of animals rescued from California wildfires

14 November 2018

"America's Newsroom" spoke to a woman who evacuated from Paradise, California, just moments before a raging wildfire scorched the Northern California town.

It's a grim reality driven home by scenes from all around the state, especially the town of Paradise, California, which has been all but wiped out by the Camp Fire, now the deadliest fire in the state's history.

Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea said the county consulted teams of anthropologists because, in some cases, investigators have been able to recover only bones and bone fragments.

"Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires", the actor added.

As one wildfire keeps inflicting more tragedy in Northern California, millions of people in Southern California will face treacherous fire conditions Tuesday.

Trump previously said on Saturday that the disastrous wildfires in California had caused a "catastrophic damage", saying that the fires were expanding very quickly.

Authorities picking their way through burned-out neighborhoods say a Southern California wildfire has now destroyed at least 435 buildings, a lot of them homes.

North Valley Animal Disaster Group has received about 5,000 calls for help since Thursday.

Authorities continue to search through the burnt shells of homes and vehicles in Paradise looking for the more than 200 people who are missing.

A 'Breaking Bad' movie is in the works
It appears we'll get to find out as part of this Breaking Bad movie , but it'll be interesting to see exactly what this is. The Journal also reports the title as " Greenbriar ", though whether that's the final title is in the air as well.

The 42 confirmed deaths far surpass the 29 casualties from the Griffith Park blaze in Los Angeles in 1933.

The fires have spread with an erratic intensity that has strained firefighting resources while catching many residents by surprise.

The fire is the most destructive in the state's history.

The bodies of some of the Camp Fire victims were found in burned-out wreckage of vehicles that were overrun by walls of fire as evacuees tried to flee, only to be trapped in deadly knots of traffic gridlock on Thursday night.

The fire has burned more than 111,000 acres (45,000 hectares) and is almost 25% contained, fire officials said.

Nearby, the Hill Fire in Ventura County has burned 4,531 acres and was 85 percent contained, according to a post by Cal Fire on Monday night.

More than 15,000 more structures remained listed as threatened on Monday in an area so thick with smoke that visibility was reduced in some places to less than half a mile.

Meanwhile, in Southern California, firefighters are gaining ground on the Woolsey Fire, but heavy winds are still a major issue and crews are stretched thin. "Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger".

If you can't decide on a campaign or want to help more than one, you can also donate to their Direct Impact Fund, which supports a number of campaigns connected to California fires.
