President Donald Trump will travel to California on Saturday to meet with victims of the deadly wildfires that have scorched the state.

The White House on Thursday announced that it is still arranging details of Trump's trip, but he will visit people who have been impacted by the fires.

The fires in Northern and Southern California, which started last week, have prompted the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of people and resulted in the destruction of thousands of homes.

At least 56 people were killed in and nearby the Northern California town of Paradise, which was leveled by the fire.

Two people were killed by the Woolsey Fire in Southern California, and a third death in that fire zone is under investigation as possibly being linked to the blaze.
