Southern California residents face changing confusion as several fast-moving wildfires continue to engulf tens of thousands of acres while destroying dozens of residences in its path.
Flames destroyed the hills circumventing Interstate 405 near Los Angeles’ famed Getty Center early Wednesday, with the fire igniting up the high-pitched terrain in a horrifying, apocalyptic-like presentation. The blaze pressured the closure of part of the heavily traveled north-south freeway.
In haunting photos, rows of residences are verified razed to the soil in Ventura County, where the largest of the fervours has engulf more than 50,000 acres since Monday night.
Overall, more than 68,000 acres are estimated to have been charred across Southern California this week. As of Wednesday morning , no fatalities had been reported from the fires.
