Driving Through A Forest Fire Is Like Driving Through A Vision Of Hell

As thousands of firefighters mobilize in Northern California to battle out-of-control wildfires, sometimes the requirements of the job necessitate that you actually drive through the fire itself. And when you do that, it looks like Dante's Inferno.

It's hard to see anything as the smoke itself along Highway 89 seems to glow from all the burning embers. At times flying, flaming chunks of debris hit the windshield.


It's incredibly dangerous work, but somebody's got to do it, right?

Not me, I mean. Definitely not me. No way in hell (ha, pun) could you get me to drive through that.

Don't start forest fires.
