A devastating blaze in northern California has become the deadliest wildfire in the history of the state, with 42 people killed, Sheriff Kory Honea said on Monday.

Meanwhile in Northern California, teams searching the charred ruins of the town of Paradise found five bodies at a home and one in a vehicle, raising the death toll to 29 and making it the deadliest wildfire on record in California history.

The fire has now surpassed the 1933 Griffith Park disaster that killed 31.

Some bodies were found in gutted cars that were overrun by the fast-moving fire, as residents scrambled to evacuate overnight.

The devastation was so complete in some neighbourhoods that, "It's very hard to determine whether or not there may be human remains there", Mr Honea said. Authorities said they have reports of 110 people still missing in the area affected by the blaze. The dead were so badly burned that authorities brought in a mobile DNA lab and consulted forensic anthropologists for help in identifying them.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Woolsey fire has caused at least two confirmed deaths and has forced more than 250,000 people to evacuate their homes.

Neil Young, Robin Thicke, Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus are among those who lost their homes along the coastline.

"It was way too big a firestorm", Lani Netter, whose Malibu home was spared while her neighbour's burned, said.

The home is on a winding stretch of Mulholland Highway with steep panoramic views, where on Saturday the roadway was littered with rocks, a few large boulders and fallen power lines, some of them still on fire.

"I need to find my mom - I'm not giving up hope she's out there", he said. "My animals and LOVE OF MY LIFE made it out safely & that's all that matters right now", she wrote, describing herself as "devastated".

The deadliest wildfire to hit the state, according to USA authorities, with 31 dead and 228 people unaccounted for. "We are safe and surrounded by family and friends", he wrote.

More than 8,000 firefighters battled the wildfires that scorched at least 400 square miles (1,040 square kilometres) of the state, with the flames feeding on dry brush and driven by winds that had a blowtorch effect. "My house no longer stands but the memories shared with family & friends stand strong".

As of this morning, the fire has destroyed 6,453 residences and 260 commercial buildings.

Firefighters on Sunday managed to contain flare-ups generated by high winds in canyons along the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu and Bell Canyon in Ventura County, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said.

"California is vulnerable-not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think", Young said.

Celebrities including Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West, Rainn Wilson, and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the unprecedented winds.

State officials have blamed climate change and said numerous burn areas have been in federally managed lands.
