The Woolsey Fire broke out last month in Ventura County, California. 42 deaths occurred and hundreds of homes have been lost.

Los Angeles Times reports that investigators are still looking for the cause of the fire. Southern California Edison told state regulators that there was an outage tied to its Chatsworth substation two minutes before the fire was reported but there is no indication from fire agency personnel that Southern California Edison was involved in the start of the fires.

New York Times says, “With a toll of 42 dead, the blaze there is already the deadliest in California history, and more than 200 people remain missing.”

LA Curbed says, “Mandatory Evacuations have been lifted in west hills and parts of Calabasas but remain in place in Malibu and Topanga. Containment is now 35 percent.”

The Butte County sheriff announced a huge increase on experts in finding human remains: 150 extra search-and-rescue personnel, cadaver dogs, and two portable temporary morgue units from the military.

Govoner Jerry Brown sought a “Major Disaster Declaration,” for the state of California from the white house on Sunday.

Just the day before, President Trump tweeted, “There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that the forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!”

With Californian officials enraged, Governor Brown tweets responded,” Managing all forest everywhere we can does not [create] climate change – and those that deny that are definitely contributing to the tragedy.”

Trump tweeted, “I just approved an expedited request for a Major Disaster Declaration for the state of California, wanted to respond quickly in order to alleviate some of the incredible suffering going on. I am with you all the way. God Bless all of the victims and families affected.”

The Sacramento Bee says,” As the Camp Fire slowly comes under containment, its devastating toll is starting to emerge.”

Families, homes, and business work hard to recover from last month’s massive fires that have caused such painful and heartbreaking tragedy.
