Nearly 250,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes in Southern California as the Woolsey and Hill fires continue to wreak havoc the region.

The damage: The Woolsey fire, in particular, has covered 35,000 acres, the L.A. Times reports, and is still on the move as it creeps towards the coast through Oak Park and Thousand Oaks sustaining wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour. The fire has taken at least 100 structures, according to the Los Angeles fire chief. Among the damaged structures is Paramount Ranch in Agoura where HBO's "Westworld" has been filmed.

President Trump tweeted his dissatisfaction with the management of California’s forests, Saturday morning, threatening to pull federal funding for the state. He later tweeted a warning to residents of the affected areas, calling on people to “listen to evacuation orders.”

Why it matters: Methane is an extremely powerful greenhouse gas and the industry is a key emissions source.

Kushner says Trump didn't promote false Kamala Harris birtherism theory

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner told "CBS This Morning" on Friday that he does not believe President Trump promoted a baseless claim that Sen. Kamala Harris is ineligible to be vice president.

Driving the news: During a press briefing on Thursday, Trump did not question the veracity of a Newsweek op-ed that inaccurately claimed Harris may be ineligible for the office due to her parents' naturalization status at the time of her birth. Harris is an American citizen and was born in Oakland, Calif.
