Wildfires Were Spreading Fast
The whole team was beyond exhausted. They'd never seen a wildfire as powerful as that one. They knew they were working against Mother Nature, and when a wildfire spreads, it does so at an impressive speed. The ground was scorched to the max, and more and more flames were starting to surround them. They knew they needed to head back to camp. But that's when they noticed a familiar face. It was none other than Guy Fiery. He started walking, and when they realized what he was planning on doing , they knew they needed to back him up.
Once a fire begins, it can quickly spread at the spine-chilling rate of up to 14.29 miles per hour. These multiple California wildfires were destroying everything on their path. In a matter of minutes, a wildfire can devour acres of land, trees, and forests, taking the lives of many animals' natural habitat. People were also forced to evacuate their homes. But none of the officers and firefighters that were there to help realized that they wouldn't be fighting this all on their own.
It was a heartbreaking sight. People were running away from the place they once called home. There was no time to think. Everything they once owned had to stay there, or they risked losing their lives. Some people, unfortunately, didn't make it. The wildfires were spreading fast, but the heroic volunteers, firefighters, and police officers weren't about to run away. They had left everything behind, even their families, in the hopes of battling the wildfires and saving lives. But a mysterious man was dead set on helping out, and he knew exactly how.
It Took All Day
These heroic folks worked incessantly to put out the flames. They worked strenuous 24-hour shifts. It may sound like a lot, but when adrenaline kicks in and you realize just how dangerous of a situation you're dealing with, there's no time to rest. They made sure to take breaks in camps nearby. Everyone was doing everything they could to stop the flames from burning it all down, but sadly, there was only so much they could do. Some communities were completely scorched down. After a long's day work, a few firefighters were making their way back to camp when suddenly they spotted something that caught their eye. Where they hallucinating?
Many towns near LA were in grave danger. Storms of hot ambers were raining down on them, as the situation got more and more threatening.

The fires were starting to cover more ground and soon enough, they had destroyed 72,500 homes and other buildings, but the most affected area was a little town called Paradise, in Northern California. Things got so bad, that everyone in Paradise was living a real-life nightmare. Thankfully, they weren't alone, as there were a few real-life heroes willing to risk everything in order to help.
