WATCH: Hellish Video Shows One Man’s Drive to Escape California Wildfires

Video has emerged of a man’s drive through a hellish landscape as he fled the California wildfires.

The video was uploaded by KTVU reporter Alex Savidge and shows a dashcam view of Colton Percifield‘s perilous journey through flames, falling trees and flying fireballs.

Journalist Brian Schnee of KTVL also posted a dashcam video by Brynn Parrott Chatfield showing flames on either side of the road and a reddened sky.

In the past days, fires have ravaged Butte County in northern California prompting evacuations and fears for both the lives of people and livestock the fire’s path.

At least five have been reported dead and communities have been left in ruins.

Thankfully Percifield,Β the man driving in the video above, managed to escape the flames unscathed.
