Fires are hitting both northern and southern California, with the northern blaze labelled the ‘Camp Fire’, while the southern fire is called the ‘Woolsey Fire’.
The Camp Fire has officially become the deadliest single wildfire on record for the state after it killed 42 people and destroyed more than 7,100 homes.

228 people are still missing, and while everyone is hoping they will be found safely.
Yesterday (November 12) President Donald Trump approved a major disaster declaration for the state, which will allow it to access more federal funds.
Thousands of people have evacuated the area, with many sharing pictures on social media of missing loved ones and homes which have been destroyed.
In southern California, the Woolsey Fire has burned through at least 91,000 acres, destroyed 370 structures, and killed two people.
The firefighters are doing some incredible, relentless work to contain the fire. Our thoughts are with all those affected by the devastating events.
