CALIFORNIA (ABC NEWS) – As thousands of exhausted firefighters appeared to be getting a handle Tuesday on two massive wildfires at opposite ends of California, officials continued to find more bodies amid the charred destruction, with now at least 50 people found dead from the fires.

Firefighters battling the Camp Fire in Northern California and the Woolsey Fire in Southern California had both blazes at least 30 percent contained on Tuesday morning, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, also known as Cal Fire.

The fires have killed 50 people, destroyed more than 8,000 structures and burned 345-square-miles of land, while officials warned of howling winds that could spawn more monster blazes with the slightest spark.

Officials warned of new extreme fire danger in San Diego County, where ferocious wind gusts of up to 86 mph were recorded early Tuesday morning and could hit 100 mph by the end of the day, according to the National Weather Service.
