On Thursday night, California Governor Edmund G. Brown declared a state of emergency in Siskiyou County as residents were evacuated from their homes.

Evacuations have been ordered in parts of San Bernardino County because of multiple fast-moving fires in the San Bernardino National Forest. Fire bans have also been enacted by many counties.

The Jackson County Search and Rescue officials are urging hikers and outdoor enthusiasts to avoid forested areas near the Oregon-California border due to the fire.

Elsewhere in California, the 138-square-mile County Fire northwest of Sacramento was almost 50 percent contained.

Thousands were told to evacuate as the fire edged into residential areas, and by late on Friday night it was about 1.6 kilometres from the downtown area, county fire Captain Dave Zaniboni told USA media. The identity of the person killed has not been released.

Trump’s Mar-a-Lago files request to hire 61 foreign temporary workers
Since 2010 Mar-a-Lago alone has obtained a total of 500 H-2B visas for seasonal foreign workers, according to The New Yorker . The Trump Organization hired at least 1,260 foreign workers from 2001 to 2016, according to a CNN analysis.

On Friday, the remains of an unidentified person were found near a home burned to the ground by the Klamathon fire, which broke out on Thursday near California's border with Oregon.

"We know we've lost homes and lots of structures, including livestock and horses as well", said Ray Haupt, chairman of the Siskiyou County Board of Supervisors. "We've been talking to people who evacuated, and no one's missing right now, so that's good".

Elsewhere in California, a massive blaze north-west of Sacramento that began June 30 had destroyed 10 homes and other buildings but was 42 percent contained, officials said. According to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, the fire broke out around 5.40 p.m local time (8.40 p.m. EDT) and it affected the city of Duarte and the MTA Gold Line track. Officials expect increasingly warm temperatures and dry weather this weekend could spur fire growth. This includes the Pacific Crest Trail, Mount Ashland, and the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument.

The Los Angeles Times reports that a powerful fire burned numerous homes in Santa Barbara County, "with an evacuation order extending to more than 2,000 residents".

Search and rescue crews may be prohibited from engaging in search missions because of fire danger, the office said.
