    Fire engulf cars on freeway in California

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by GingerCoffee, Jul 18, 2015.

    Wow, I've been around a lot of wildfires but I've never seen anything like this. Cars got caught on the freeway going through Cajon Pass when a brushfire crossed the freeway and engulfed a few cars and trucks, now as they burn it's spreading to other vehicles that are stranded there.

    There are copters dumping water on the cars but there aren't enough of them. They knock some flames down and before they get back the flames are back in the vehicles. There's a fire truck there now but it's also a pitiful response.

    People have abandoned the cars but you have to wonder why they aren't there trying to move their vehicles away from the burning vehicles.

    After I read this, my first thought was, "Someone must have done something stupid, somewhere."

    Not sure how that reflects on my view of humanity.

    Either way, this is just awful.
