"Let's hope he gets us some help", said Couch, who voted for Trump and whose house was among more than 9,800 that burned down last week.

"There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor", Trump tweeted on November 10.

The deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California's history, the so-called Camp Fire, has now claimed 71 lives. The fire was reported to have moved through the area at 80 miles per hour.

Authorities say they are working to erase duplication of names on the list, and also to reconcile the names of people who may be unaware they have been reported missing by neighbours or acquaintances.

'I think people have to see this really to understand it, ' he added.

Officials also raised the number of people on the missing persons list, hours after president Donald Trump surveyed what remained of a decimated community.

Other residents, however, gathered on street corners with Trump flags on Saturday to greet the president's motorcade.The fire zone in northern California is to some extent Trump country. Jerry Brown and Gov. -elect Gavin Newsom thanked him for coming out. Trump boarded Marine One without making public remarks.

"The president's message attacking California and threatening to withhold aid to the victims of the cataclysmic fires is ill-informed, ill-timed, and demeaning to those who are suffering as well as the men and women on the front lines", Rice wrote in a statement.

Senior fire officials recounted how quickly the blaze spread, complicating evacuation efforts, as Trump studied a huge map spread across a table showing where fires continue to burn.

With that bold and perhaps unlikely prediction, Trump pledged that improved forest management practices will diminish future risks.

The names were being compiled from information received from a special hotline, along with email reports and a review of emergency-911 calls that came in on the first night of the fire, Honea said.

Before boarding Air Force One to California on Saturday morning, Trump was asked about forest management again and repeated his stance.

Total devastation in Paradise, CA.

"We're going to have safe forests and that's happening as we speak."
"Thousands and thousands of homes got destroyed with no trees around", Roslyn Roberts told Reuters.

A vigil for the victims from Paradise was being planned for Sunday afternoon at a church in Chico, about 14.5 miles west of Paradise. "We've been lengthening fire season by shortening the precipitation season, and we're warming throughout", says UCLA climate scientist Daniel Swain.

Trump is scheduled to visit the northern California town of Paradise Saturday, a home to 27,000, which was entirely destroyed by the Camp Fire.

Gary Jacobs, a firefighter sent from San Mateo County, said everybody has their own opinions and he stays out of politics.

They are also trying to help thousands of people who did make it out alive but have nowhere to go, except for the parking lot of a Walmart and other places that are hosting thousands in their vehicles and tents. The Golden Gate Bridge was shrouded in thick smog.

Much of the work is now focused on Paradise, where many retirees were unable to get out in time.

Rescuers with sniffer dogs have been conducting a painstaking house-to-house search.

She had no phone service and no electricity, and she was just hoping someone would see her and come help. He was hunting for his brother, sister-in-law and nephew. According to fire officials, by late Sunday the Camp Fire was around 25 percent contained, while only 15 percent of the Woolsey Fire was under control.
