WATCH: A Stunning Timelapse Video of the Disastrous California Wildfire

Screen Shot 2013-08-29 at 3.49.33 PM

A strangely beautiful timelapse video of the devastating, NYC-sized wildfire burning its way through Yosemite National Park in California.

Check it out, AFTER THE JUMP...

More, via Gawker:

The fire is already the seventh largest in California's history, and so far 111 structures have been destroyed with another 4,000 in harm's way. Over 4,200 firefighters are battling the fire, which is only 23 percent contained after nearly two weeks. Officials, however, are optimistic.

  2. I wouldn't call this fire 'disastrous' in any way.

    If they survive, forest fires help all sorts of animals from bears to deer to birds. They aid in fertilization of the soil. They ensure the forests don't become too dense.

    Forest fires are a good thing aside from the obvious downside of humans whose lives are potentially lost or whose homes get in the way of an otherwise beautiful aspect of eco-balance.

  3. You're an idiot.

    There are 5,000 firefighters risking life and limb, hundreds of building have already burned down, and another 5,000 are threatened.

    It's only about 30% contained today. It is estimated to burn another THREE WEEKS.

    Schoolchildren in Reno, and up and down Nevada have been kept indoors going on two weeks because the air quality has been so bad. It's going to remain dangerous for another week at least.

    STFU if you don't know WTF you're talking about, idiot.

  5. LCR's; California deserves it, its filled with Liburals and it's God's will.

    All Other Gays; California Forrests are on fire.

    What's wrong with this picture?

  6. Why does this Dean person do a rewrite of the same somewhat indecipherable comment on every post, with an identical conclusion? Tourette's of the fingertips?
