Donald Trump's claiming the "gross mismanagement of forests" is to blame for California's wildfires.
There is no reason for these massive, deadly and costly forest fires in California except that forest management is so poor. Billions of dollars are given each year, with so many lives lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. Remedy now, or no more Fed payments!— Donald J.

Kory Honea, a sheriff in northern California, says they tried to alert people, but the fire spread very quickly.
I heard the flames have hit our property at our home in Hidden Hills but now are more contained and have stopped at the moment. It doesn’t seems like it is getting worse right now, I just pray the winds are in our favor. God is good. I’m just praying everyone is safe 🙏🏼— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) November 9, 2018
Celebrities including Kim Kardashian-West and Caitlyn Jenner are among those affected by wildfires in California.
Kim's posted an online message, saying she had just an hour to evacuate her home near Malibu.
Meanwhile actor Charlie Sheen tweeted that he's been unable to contact his parents
but Martin Sheen spoke to a TV news crew, reporting on the wildfires
he said "Emilio, Romon, Renee, Charlie, we're fine , we're at Zuma beach, we're probably gonna sleep in the car tonight, we're just fine'
