Southern California is currently being torn apart by massive bushfires.
Parts of the state north and northwest of Los Angeles have been burning uncontrollably since late last week, with the Santa Barbara County also coming under siege from the Thomas fire on Sunday as fire crews fought to keep the destructive blaze from the region’s picturesque beach communities.
The uncontrolled blaze had scorched more than 200,000 acres by Sunday afternoon, causing thousands of people to be evacuated from their homes.
The fires are being labelled as the worst that California has seen in a long time, and judging on this video shared by Hollywood producer Brooke Mogul, it's easy to see why:
The video looks like literal hellfire, with flames roaring up LA's hills and engulfing every bit of grass in sight.
Our thoughts are with the fire fighters and people of California.
