Honea said 100 National Guard troops were being sent in at his request to assist the search for additional human remains left by the so-called Camp Fire.

Before the Camp fire struck, the most deadly wildfire in California's history was the Griffith Park blaze, which killed 29 people in Los Angeles in 1933.

Many people are still missing, with specialist search teams combing the town of Paradise which was left nearly totally destroyed by flames.

More than 15,000 structures were threatened by the Camp Fire on Monday in an area so thick with smoke that visibility was reduced in some places to less than half a mile.

Thousands of firefighters battled blazes in northern and southern California on Tuesday as body recovery teams searched the remains of houses and charred cars for victims of the deadliest wildfire in the history of the USA state.

A landowner near where the fire began said PG&E notified her the day before the wildfire that crews needed to come onto her property because wires were sparking.

Firefighters continue to battle Woolsey Fire alongside Hill Fire, Camp Fire and newly ignited Sierra fire, as more than 300,000 residents remain under evacuation orders across the state.

On Sunday, he had told reporters that with the level of destruction, "Camp Fire" brought upon the county, "it's very hard to determine whether or not there may be human remains there".

At least 42 deaths have been reported from the "Camp Fire" in Butte County and another two from the "Woolsey Fire," north of Los Angeles.

"No", he said. "We are going to have to have help from the fed-from the state".

Stewart Morrow, an official of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire), was assessing damage to homes in Paradise, comparing piles of charred rubble where houses once stood with online photos of the structures before the fire.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said he canceled a trip to Asia and will visit the fire zones Wednesday and Thursday.

Seasonal Santa Ana winds have fanned fires across the state, as they blew in from mountain and desert areas.

Butte County Sheriff Honea said that some remains may not be found before residents start returning to their intact homes.

Which is, obviously, good for Republicans because, um, controlling more Senate seats is usually a better thing than a worse one . Republicans remain the majority in both chambers, so the power to create and pass legislation still lies largely in their hands.


PG&E told state regulators last week that it experienced a problem on a transmission line just before the blaze erupted in the vicinity. "People have been badly burned. I have the deepest respect for our first responders who do heroes work all the time and, unfortunately, they couldn't be everywhere at once".

Earlier Mr Honea said 228 people were listed as missing, and his office was working to determine the fate of almost 1,300 people whose loved ones had requested "wellbeing checks".

The question that immediately jumps to mind is whether or not the horse knew what it was doing when it took an impromptu dip in the pool.

Josh Campbell of Cal Fire told local media early on Wednesday, however, that in at least one instance the strong wind gusts in a canyon near the city of Chico, not far from Paradise, were actually helping by slowing the spread of the fire.

A 10-member forensics search team wearing white protective suits and red helmets used a dog to scour the debris on one residential street in Paradise lined with razed houses.

More than a dozen coroner search-and-recovery teams looked for bodies across the apocalyptic landscape that was once Paradise, while anxious relatives visited shelters and called police and hospitals in hopes of finding loved ones.
