Trump mistakenly refers to fire-ravaged Paradise as 'Pleasure' during California visit

Mr Trump cited the Finnish president as telling him Finns "spend a lot of time on raking and cleaning and doing things (in the forest), and they don't have any problem".

Donald Trump twice referred to the fire-ravaged California town of Paradise as "Pleasure" during a weekend visit to survey the damage.

The people of Finland have trolled US President Donald Trump on social media after he suggested California should follow the Scandinavian country's lead and do more "raking" to prevent wildfires.

A pair of crooks were busted for looting a California fire station amid the most deadly and devastating wildfire to ever strike the state, officials said Monday.

"I told him that Finland is a country covered in forests, but we also have a good warning system and network", the president said.

Authorities are still looking for 1,011 more people.

Officials battling the largest wildfire in California history say the rain forecast to arrive this week may complicate search and recovery efforts.

Honea said among the dead was Lolene Rios, 56, whose son Jed tearfully told KXTV in Sacramento that his mother "had endless amount of love for me".

Mr Trump made the comments while visiting the west coast state and while chatting to survivors of the Camp Fire blaze which has killed 76 and destroyed more than 12,000 properties.

Brown's comments come after Trump reiterated his forest management claims during a trip to California Saturday.

"We have been told we're to look as hard as we can, but it's still possible we may not be able to find something left of someone", Trish Moutard, a volunteer with the California Rescue Dog Association, told Reuters.

Mr Trump praised the emergency services.

"There have been some back and forth between California leaders and the president", Mr Brown said.

He added: "I think people have to see this really to understand it".

Speaking to reporters during the weekend while in California to see the impact of devastating forest fires, the United States president again blamed forest management, but said Finland had the answer. However, the country has very few forest fires even compared to neighboring Sweden, which had bad fires this year.

Northern California's Camp Fire has destroyed almost 10,000 homes and burned 233 square miles.

The Camp and Woolsey fires are around 55% and 88% contained, respectively.

In Southern California, Trump also met briefly at an airport hangar with families and first responders touched by the shooting at the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks more than a week ago.
