More than 8,000 firefighters have been battling the three large wildfires burning across almost 400 square miles of northern and southern California, with out-of-state crews arriving to help.

The Camp Fire has claimed at least 29 lives since it broke out on Thursday, while at least two people have died in the Woolsey Fire threatening the wealthy beach community of Malibu, near Los Angeles.

Firefighters took advantage of a brief calm overnight to make headway against the multiple blazes, but conditions were expected to be hellish on Sunday with winds reaching as high as 110 kilometres an hour.
