    The Woolsey fire has now burned 93,662 acres and destroyed 435 homes and other structures. Containment has reached 30% and officials say the fire may be fully contained five days from now.

    Only 15% of the homes burned by the Camp fire have been searched. Thirteen more bodies were found today and more than 200 people are still unaccounted for. The death toll will certainly rise. Anyone wishing to help the families who lost their homes can donate to the North Valley Community Foundation's Camp Fire Evacuation Relief Fund:

    Death toll from Paradise fire jumps to 42, making it the deadliest in California history

    A flare-up of the Woolsey fire quickly burned more than 50 acres this morning in an inaccessible mountain area in eastern Ventura County. More than 80% of National Parks Service land in the Santa Monica Mountains Recreation Area has burned. The Woolsey fire is now at 35% containment.

    We hear so many stories about selfish Hollywood celebrities, these two reports are like a bit of fresh air -- and fresh air in Malibu and surrounding areas is non-existent this week.

    After losing their home in the Woolsey fire, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth donate $500,000 to The Malibu Foundation

    The Camp fire has now burned 125,000 acres and destroyed more than 7,600 homes and other buildings. It has killed 42 people and more than 200 are still missing. The fire is spreading westward toward Chico and is only 30% contained.

    Seventy-mile-an-hour wind gusts are hampering firefighters' efforts to control the Woolsey fire. It has now burned 96,000 acres and is 35% contained.

    The fire in the Rialto-Fontana area, dubbed the Sierra fire, has now burned 147 acres and is 75% contained. A body was found in a burned-out home in Agoura Hills, bringing the Woolsey fire death toll to three. In what remains of the town of Paradise, the death toll from the Camp Fire is now 48 and more than 200 remain missing.

    Gorman, named for the man who owned the small town in the 1860s-70s, is located along the Golden State Freeway in northwest Los Angeles County. Today's fire burned five acres.

    Brush fire near Gorman sparks fast heavy response and evacuations

    The Woolsey fire has now burned 98,362 acres and destroyed 504 homes and buildings. It is 52% contained and full containment is expected in four more days. Police are allowing a few evacuated residents of southern Malibu to return home -- assuming they still have a home to return to -- but if they do not have a driver's license or other photo ID to prove where they live, or if they say they just want to check on a friend's or family member's home, they will be turned away.

    Sixty-three fatalities have been confirmed in the Camp fire and the Butte County Sheriff's Office reports that 631 people are "unaccounted for." That is an increase of 501 since last night. The fire has destroyed 11,862 homes and other structures. The area burned remains at 140,000 acres and containment remains at 40%. So much smoke has reached Sacramento, Oakland and San Francisco that many schools will be closed tomorrow and San Francisco's open-air cable cars will not be running.
