A video going viral shows the extent of the devastation and it is quite graphic. In it, charred remains of victims can be seen lying in the middle of the roads and some in cars.
The video shot by a California man shows the aftermath of the wildfire. The man sounded shocked and in pain as he recorded the video. He describes how just hours earlier he spoke to each of the dead people as they all tried to evacuate the area.
As the fire got closer, they all got trapped, but the man filming said he was lucky to escape. Sadly, not everyone could leave in time and some of them were burnt.
One of those burnt was a crippled friend of the man who filmed the incident and his mother.
The man showed his viewers where he left his car parked in the middle of the road with other cars owned by people trying to flee the area. Behind his car was one belonging to his cripple friend. He then took the camera close to the car where his friend’s charred body and that of his mother can be seen reclining in the car seat. Some part of the car was still on fire and smoke emanated from the area.
According to reports, a total of 29 people have died in the North California wildfire after 6 more bodies were recently found.
