The wildfires in Northern California have been ravaging the region. There are currently 22 fires burning in the state, with eight rampaging in the North Bay area alone.
Firefighters and other first responders have been running themselves ragged trying to battle the blazes that are threatening the homes and lives of tens-of-thousands of people.
Fire doesn't discriminate, it just burns with reckless abandon. There have been mass evacuations throughout the region, and at least 31 confirmed deaths as of Friday morning. Firefighters and other emergency personnel have been doing everything they can in an attempt to corral the blazes, but resources are stretched thin as it is.
Sacrifices have had to be made in order to try and keep the situation under some form of control, especially by the firefighters themselves.
