DRIVING OUT OF A WILDFIRE

A driver filmed his nail-biting escape from a wildfire in Anderson Springs, California, as the forest surrounding the road began to melt.

The Valley fire in Lake County continues to rage untamed after scorching 61,000 acres (95 square miles) in just two days. The governor of California has declared a state of emergency and thousands of residents have been displaced. 

The Guardian has published a series of incredible, and sobering, photos from the area:
