She wrote her 2017 single "Malibu" about the "Hunger Games" actor and their home in the beachside city. "Once I have complaint on file I can use the court's power, if necessary, to make sure things are happening", including maintaining records and preserving physical evidence, he said. As one major freeway reopened, another was closed.

The National Weather Service has issued a "red flag" alert warning of "extremely critical" weather conducive to the spread of fire through Tuesday, with especially high winds expected in mountainous areas.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation and Osby said nothing had been ruled out.

At least 29 people have been killed in that inferno and more than 6,000 structures destroyed.

"In some cases", he said, "the fire burned so intensely that it burned everything to the ground, and in some cases it melted the metal".

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby stressed there were numerous hotspots and plenty of fuel that had not yet burned, but at sunset he said there had been huge successes despite "a very challenging day".

Eager to know the status of his house, 69-year-old Roger Kelly defied evacuation orders Sunday and hiked back into Seminole Springs, his lakeside mobile home community in the Santa Monica Mountains north of Malibu.

At least two people have been killed and 370 homes have been destroyed in the fires that erupted last week west of downtown Los Angeles.

Some of the thousands of people forced from their homes were allowed to return, and authorities reopened USA 101, a major freeway through the fire zone in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

Statewide, 150,000 people have been displaced as more than 8,000 fire crews battle wildfires that have scorched almost 1,040 square kilometres of land, with out-of-state crews continuing to arrive.

California is now seeing raging fires blasting through the state and satellite pictures are showing the extent of the damage.

"These are extreme conditions", Osby said.

Trump continued his rhetoric on Sunday, writing on Twitter, "With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California".

Publicly, PG&E has said it experienced a problem on an electrical transmission line near the site of the massive fire, minutes before the blaze broke out. Under California law, if the equipment is found to be the cause of the fires, the utilities can be held liable for property losses even if they didn't act negligently. Rasmussen said the return was emotional and he gasped as he rounded corners on the road home that revealed the extent of damage with powerlines down and homes gone.

"It's not the house, because you can rebuild".

DigitalGlobe representatives said in a statement: "As you will see in the images, the wildfires are extensive and spreading through the area".
