Burning for more than three days, the Sand Fire in California has grown to cover more than 13,000 hectares, Euronews reports.


Fueled by high winds and parched conditions after years of drought in the Golden State, the ferocious wildfire is threatening many small communities near Santa Clarita on the edge of Los Angeles National Park.


“Within 45 minutes it travelled that 10 miles it was right to our back yard,” local resident Mark Dewberry told a reporter, “(it was)100 feet tall, I mean full tornado fire. Spinning, nothing like I’ve ever seen close up.”
