As wildfires rage these days in southern California, burning glitzy towns like Malibu, the roster of evacuees reads like the guest list at the Oscars.
The Camp Fire erupted on Thursday and grew by 5,000 acres in just three hours - or an average of more than one football field every three seconds.
A total of 150 search-and-recovery personnel were due to arrive on Tuesday, bolstering 13 coroner-led recovery teams in the fire zone, Honea said.
"Unfortunately, the best science is telling us that the dryness, warmth, drought, all those things, they're going to intensify", Brown said.
Most of the fatalities have been reported from the town of Paradise, population 26,000, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains about 130 kilometres north of Sacramento.
Honea added that his office had received requests to check on the wellbeing of more than 1,500 people who had not been heard from by loved ones.
At least 44 people have now lost their lives in the wildfires sweeping California, as winds spread the flames still further.
The fire had forced authorities to issue evacuation orders for a quarter million people in Ventura and Los Angeles counties and beachside communities including the Malibu beach colony, home to many celebrities.
As for what caused the two deadly fires, that remains under investigation.
Searchers found the charred remains of their house and the burned-out shells of their vehicles - but no bodies, she said.
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.
By Monday night, the Camp fire was about 30 percent contained.
But this footage also shows the horrific reality faced by Californians as they try to maintain normalcy even as these deadly fires continue to encroach upon their daily lives.
The Woolsey Fire is estimated to have destroyed 435 buildings.
Almost 9,000 firefighters, many from out of state, were battling to suppress the Camp Fire, the Woolsey Fire and a handful of smaller Southern California blazes, backed by squadrons of water-dropping helicopters and airplane tankers.
