By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Across Northern California, 15 wildlife’s are presently raging. According to authorities, at least 1,500 homes and businesses have been engulfed in the flames. Sadly, at least 10 people have been killed — and that number is expected to grow.

Residents and wildlife have been fleeing the area, and over 100 people are being treated in nearby hospitals for injuries related to fire and smoke inhalation. Reportedly, some of the fires raging are the biggest in the state’s history, and the damage has only begun.

To gain a proper understanding of just how harrowing these natural disasters are, take a look at the following photos, shared by social media users. The photographs reveal not only the scale of the fires as the make their way across the state, but the destruction they are leaving in their wake.

According to the LA Times, nearly 5,000 homes were evacuated as the fire inched closer. It will be days before residents can return to their homes — if they are still standing. Brave firefighters and volunteers are working with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection to keep the blaze under control.

Following are 10+ sobering images of the fires consuming California:

For years, scientists have been warning that if carbon emissions are not curbed, the greenhouse gas effect will exacerbate climate change.
