The wildfires continue to rip through Southern California and this video taken from the 405 on Wednesday night looks like something out of a movie. 

Every day firefighters in Los Angeles receive a brush burning index report that indicates the fire danger. If it’s 165 or higher, that’s extreme. The number for Thursday is 296, the highest it has ever been, according to Los Angeles Fire Chief Ralph.
