Crews battle massive California wildfires

The death toll from 2 massive wildfires raging in California - rising to 11 on Saturday.

The Woolsey wildfire in Southern California doubling in size, spreading over 70,000 acres, killing 2 people and damaging thousands of homes and businesses in its path.

SOUNDBITE LA SHERIFF'S DEPT CHIEF JOHN BENEDICT saying: "We ask people to not go back into those areas, because quite frankly it's not safe." Bumper-to-bumper traffic piled up along California's Pacific Coast Highway as nearly 250,000 people scrambled to evacuate... The blaze hitting upscale beach communities like Malibu.

NATSOUND UNIDENTIFIED: "Memories, gone.

I mean, it was all in perfect condition two and a half hours ago when I was standing there." A Paramount movie set in Southern California -reduced to ashes.

Hundreds of movies and TV shows were shot there, most recently HBO's westworld.

Meanwhile, a deadly wildfire is also raging in Northern California- The Camp Fire--has killed at least 9 people in and around the town of Paradise and burned down nearly 7000 homes and businesses..

According to state fire officials... making it the most destructive blaze in California history.

SOUNDBITE: Annie Vanderlinden, Evacuee saying: "This looks totally out of control, I've never seen anything like it." SOUNDBITE: Charles Messer, Evacuee saying: "It's moving it's way in, that's why we left." Many evacuees ending up at shelters like this one in Chico California-- that's filling up fast.

SOUNDBITE: David Fitzsimmons, Lost Home in Paradise saying: "Our house is burned to the ground." SOUNDBITE: Bruce Gibson, Lost Home in Paradise saying: "Oh yeah, lost our home and our business in a matter of seconds.

Have nothing, just some credit cards.

" Trump early on Saturday tweeting that "gross mismanagement of forests" was to blame for the two unchecked wildfires, adding "Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!," Those words providing little comfort to those impacted by the fires, some who lost everything and will need to start from scratch.
