Watch This Car’s Hair-Rasing Escape From a Northern California Wildfire
“I feel very vulnerable posting this but I feel I should,” said Chatfield in the video caption. “My hometown of Paradise is on fire. My family is evacuated and safe. Not all my friends are safe. It’s very surreal. Things always work out, but the unknown is a little scary.”
While California is known for its wildfires, this particular situation escalated very quickly, catching many residents off-guard, and causing dramatic and fiery escapes like this one caught on video. This fire started during the early part of Thursday morning when dry landscape and high winds caused the blaze to rapidly spread. USA Today has reported injuries to firefighters and civilians, as well as accounts of unconfirmed deaths, although the scale of destruction is still unknown. Approximately 2,200 firefighters are currently in the Northern California area.
