In California, the effort to control two major wildfires remains a struggle.

The fires: There are now 228 people missing and 42 dead, making the Camp fire in the north even more lethal than the Griffith Park disaster of 1933.

"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", California Professional Firefighters President Brian K. Rice said, according to CNN.

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.

Paradise, which is home to many elderly retirees and has experienced an unusually dry fall, was virtually razed to the ground by the fast-moving "Camp Fire" blaze.

Kim Kardashian forced to evacuate her home
She also shared a video of firefighters arriving and thanked them for their service. "I've never seen anything like this". Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's home is in grave danger of being burned down, Just Jared says.

"Tell the kids that I love them and to check on my dad", she added. "We had asked them if they would take time off and they wouldn't do it because they were so committed to this". "Our hearts are with those fighting the fires, the 52,000 who have evacuated, and the families of the 11 who have died".

The flames all but obliterated the Northern California town of Paradise, population 27,000, and ravaged surrounding areas last Thursday.

The dozens dead have so far been found in their homes, in burned-out cars, or next to their vehicles. In some cases, there were only charred fragments of bone, so small that coroner's investigators used a wire basket to sift and sort them.

"This is an unprecedented event", Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea told an evening news conference. The exact number of people missing was not immediately clear. He had swollen limbs and couldn't walk.

The "Woolsey Fire", which also began on Thursday, has razed 37,900 hectares including the 100-year-old Paramount Ranch where HBO's "Westworld" and other popular television shows and movies were filmed. He was described as a "tireless provider, a dependable and loyal friend, a considerate neighbor, and loving father" who "will be sorely missed by all who knew him".

Final Fantasy XV DLC Canned And Director Hajime Tabata Resigns
The title is set to include 10 more bosses along with a couple of other new nifty things such as weapons and costumes. Square Enix has announced that three of the four planned DLCs for Final Fantasy XV have been cancelled.

Ernest Foss, 63, was a musician who had moved to the town of Paradise from San Francisco eight years ago.

The announcement came Tuesday after authorities ramped up the search for more victims buried in rubble left by the blaze that incinerated the town of Paradise.

To follow ongoing updates from fire and safety officials about the damage to specific areas in the Camp fire, Cal Fire has published a searchable map that includes photos of affected areas, as work crews inspect neighborhoods.

"This is not the new normal, this is the new abnormal", California Governor Jerry Brown said in a stark warning over the likely damaging effects of climate change.

Venture County Fire Chief Mark Lorenzen said "It wouldn't surprise me" if it turns out that winds caused equipment failure that sparked a fire.

Adriana Lima announces she’s leaving Victoria’s Secret
The supermodel's retiring from the Victoria's Secret Show runway after almost 20 years with the lingerie brand. The crowd present rose to its feet and cheered for the supermodel at her last but grand VS show.

The release of the names comes as a utility company is sued by victims over claims its power lines caused the fire.
