'Come and get me,' boy pleaded before California fire death

She desperately put a wet blanket over her great-grandchildren as their home burned. All three died

Thankfully, Google Maps has released its 2018 California fire map that lists updates on the various blazes, as well as a Google Crisis Map with information about air quality, evacuation orders, shelters, fire containment statistics, road closures, and more. "Got over the top of them, and they lay there until the fire took them", Mr Bledsoe added.

Authorities said they were still searching on Monday for seven people listed as missing since Thursday night, when gale-force winds whipped the blaze into a firestorm that jumped the Sacramento River and roared without warning into Redding and adjacent communities.

Redding Police Sergeant Todd Cogle confirmed that three bodies discovered at a fire-ravaged home on the outskirts of Redding were two children and their great-grandmother.

"She got a wet blanket and put one on her".

In addition to the Carr Fire, more than a dozen other large wildfires are burning throughout California, stretching resources.

"My babies are dead", Sherry Bledsoe said as she cried with family members after meeting with sheriff's deputies, the Associated Press reported.

The fatalities included two firefighters and a woman and her two great-grandchildren.

The Carr Fire is the worst of 17 wildfires being fought by 12,000 firefighters in California.

The weather on Sunday is expected to offer no relief for firefighters as it will hit more than 100 Fahrenheit with low humidity and gusty winds, the National Weather Service said.

"There has been a fourth victim identified as a result of the fire consuming a residence and a decedent located in that residence", Bosenko said. "I've never seen a fire with such destruction here in this area ever before", said Moty, appearing at a news conference with other public safety officials. The fires have destroyed six homes and threaten 10,000 others. Both fires are 5 percent contained.

Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said he expects to find several of those people alive and just out of touch with loved ones.

A firefighter died when he was struck by a tree as he worked on the front line of a huge fire near California's Yosemite National Park on Sunday.

Bledsoe said he did not know his home was in danger when he left his wife and great-grandchildren to run an errand on Thursday.

About 38,000 people had been evacuated in Shasta County due to the Carr Fire, officials said, though some evacuation orders have been lifted.

The fire has been fueled by dry, excess vegetation and hot surface temperatures turned it into highly flammable grasslands. He said that crews with bulldozers were trying to set up more fire lines.

The nearby town of Keswick, with a population of about 450, was reduced to cinders, and two firefighters were killed.

Todd Cogle said, "We're finding that there are a lot of communication issues" making it hard to locate residents.

CHPs across California have deployed patrolman to help Californians evacuate from the fires started Monday night by a vehicle in Whiskeytown, California.

USA firefighters have worked to put out 89 large fires, which have burned more than 3,760 square kilometres over the peak summer period.

"Everyone we come into contact in those neighbourhoods - if they don't have a legitimate reason to be there, if we don't arrest them for looting they'll be arrested for something else", he said.

On social media, residents posted photos of wandering dogs and horses left behind by owners in the fire-stricken region, a popular fishing destination that lies just south of California's largest man-made lake.
