Wildfires in California are expected to grow as storms move in.

A storm system is forecasted to move over Northern California with strong winds and lightning. It has the potential to start new fires or spread ones already burning.

In Marin County, two firefighters were rescued after gusty winds created dangerous conditions. They were both pulled to safety.

The National Weather Service issued a "red flag" warning through Monday for the already drought-stricken area.

President Trump has approved a federal disaster declaration which will provide more resources for affected counties.

Seven people have died in California's 650 wildfires.
