Fires engulfed more than 400 homes in Northern California this weekend, prompting a mass evacuation as firefighters tried and failed to quell the blaze.

The wildfire has spread across 75 square miles, and some of the photos and videos from the area are both stunning and terrifying.

These two clips show someone driving straight through the forest fire. As they pass through suburban streets with trees burning on either side, the scene looks like something out of an apocalyptic movie.
