If there's any good news here, it's that the Peak Fire, which burned 186 acres, has been 100 percent contained according to California Fire officials.

The Camp Fire became the state's deadliest Monday after an additional 13 sets of human remains were discovered - raising that fire's death toll to 42 and the statewide death toll from the latest wildfires to 44.

"America's Newsroom" spoke to a woman who evacuated from Paradise, California, just moments before a raging wildfire scorched the Northern California town.

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.

The Camp Fire now ranks as the deadliest and most destructive fire on record in California's history.

The "Camp Fire" has destroyed more than 6,500 homes and 260 commercial properties.

Firefighters are now bracing for the return of the Santa Ana winds, which threaten to fuel the vast Woolsey blaze stretching from north of Los Angeles to the Pacific coast, which is at 35 percent contained as of Tuesday morning.

"We're fine, we got very, very lucky". Battling the blaze are 5,100 firefighters, some from Washington state and Texas, backed by more than 600 fire engines and 21 helicopters, Cal Fire said. "I'm not feeling almost the amount of wind and it's a little bit cooler this morning".

Hughes is one of the 30-plus officers who lost their homes in the blaze but continued to report for duty to help locate missing people and victims, the Butte County Sheriff's Office said.

California Governor Jerry Brown said he expects the fires could be worse in the years to come. "My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong".
