California Fires Now Deadliest In State's History
Emergency services have confirmed 13 more bodies have been found, bringing the death toll to 42.
The death toll means the fires are now the deadliest in the state's history. There are still 228 people missing.
The latest dead to be found were victims of the 'Camp Fire', one of three major fires burning in the state.
More than 150 search and rescuers are expected to arrive in the area on Tuesday, including three anthropology teams to identify the dead the Butte County Sheriff's Office confirmed.
President Donald Trump announced an expedited Major Disaster Declaration for the state of California.
"Wanted to respond quickly in order to alleviate some of the incredible suffering going on," Trump said on Twitter.
NASA has released 'Damage Proxy Maps', using satellite images of the areas before the fires and Google Crisismaps to show the extensive areas expected to be damaged in the fires.
The yellow to red dots used show the increased damage expected in those areas.
The first image shows the Woolsey Fire, which has decimated the town of Paradise and has destroyed more than 37,000 hectares. Authorities said it is now 30 percent contained.
The second image shows the Camp Fire, which is currently 30 percent contained and has burned through more than 47,000 hectares.
The third and smallest fire, the Hill Fire, has burned nearly 2000 hectares but is 85 percent contained.
There is no rain forecast, but winds fanning the fires are expected to weaken overnight.
