  • Lady Gaga Visits Woolsey Fire Victims, Asks Trump to ‘Show Some Compassion’

While the so-called Camp Fire in the north has exacted a devastating human toll of 42 lives so far and essentially erased the town of Paradise, down south the flames have killed two people whose bodies were found in a vehicle.

Another two people died in the separate Woolsey Fire that has destroyed 435 structures and displaced about 200,000 people in the mountains and foothills near Southern California's Malibu coast, west of Los Angeles.

The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said Monday the blaze that started Thursday near the town of Paradise grew 3 square miles (8 square kilometers) to 177 square miles (303 square kilometers).

The death toll in the largest wildfire in California history rose Tuesday as the remains of six additional people were found, officials said. Many people are still missing, with specialist search teams combing the town of Paradise which was left nearly totally destroyed by flames.

Ten search teams were working in the town of Paradise that was largely incinerated last week and in surrounding communities in the Sierra Nevada foothills.

The cause of the Camp Fire is also still under investigation but, as in the Woolsey Fire, power equipment in the area is being investigated as a possible source.

Crews have managed to carve containment lines around 30 percent of the Camp Fire perimeter, an area encompassing 117,000 acres of scorched, smoldering terrain. She said when she called her husband, she told him, "We're not going to make it". About 7,700 homes were destroyed.

She branded the president a 'mysoginist, ' while calling his rival Hillary Clinton 'an exceptionally-qualified female candidate'. In her memoir, Michelle Obama described their actions as "crazy and mean-spirited".

Officials said Monday that an estimated 370 structures burned and that only 15 percent of their damage estimate has been completed.

Lady Gaga was forced to evacuate her Malibu home as the Woolsey fire rages on, but the singer and "A Star Is Born" actress took time to visit a Red Cross shelter on Sunday.

"If my dad hadn't have come home from work when he did, I probably wouldn't have gotten out of there, because I wouldn't have known", Bush said.

Gov. Jerry Brown said California is "pretty well maxed out" from fighting several deadly wildfires, and he expressed gratitude for help from surrounding states and the federal government.

Before the Paradise tragedy, the deadliest single fire on record in California was a 1933 blaze in Griffith Park in Los Angeles that killed 29.

He also said his tweet was plain wrong.
