DEADLY wildfires ripping though Southern California continue to threaten thousands of lives as the inferno shows no signs of stopping. Here are the most devastating pictures from the California wildfires.

United States President Donald Trump issued a state of emergency today to unlock aid resources for those threatened by the blaze.

The move will allow the the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to coordinate its relief effort with the Department of Homeland Security.

Some 200,000 people have already been forced to abandon their homes, and thousands of firefighters are valiantly tackling the blaze.

Conditions are not expected to improve over the coming days with the National Weather Service forecasting strong dry winds over the weekend.

The largest of the several named blazes, known as Thomas Fire, is singlehandedly responsible for the destruction of 439 buildings and 132,000 acres of scorched land. Only about 10 per cent of the fire was so far contained on Friday.

Hellish scenes captured across California barely scratch the surface of how terrifying the situation is.

The fires have choked out the skies with impenetrable black smoke, constantly reflecting the ominous red glow of the inferno.

Firefighters in Santa Paula were photographed on Monday attempting to contain Thomas Fire as it tore through a basketball court.
