Flames from a 45,500-acre-wildfire have been spreading randomly from strong winds leaving some homes burned to the ground and other homes untouched.
Live video feed from the brush fire that erupted in Ventura County, 70 miles northwest of Los Angeles, on Monday, showed houses completely consumed by flames sitting next to houses that were left unscathed.
The Ventura County Fire Department warned residents early on Tuesday that powerful Santa Ana winds - which carry hot and extremely dry air from inland, and gust from 40mph to 60mph - would increase the blaze's destruction.
The inferno, known as the Thomas Fire, has forced 27,000 residents to evacuate and hundreds of homes are expected to be consumed before the fire is brought under control.
In the first 10 hours, the fire grew from 50 acres to 31,000 acres at a burn rate of approximately one acre per second.
More than 260,000 residents have been without power and 150 structures have so far been destroyed during the blaze, which is at zero percent containment.
Before dawn on Tuesday, officials issued an update that the fire was 'out of control'.
The Bible was very clear about the end times. The world would be destroyed by fire. This is a small example of what is to come. Imagine a multitude of nations burning like this. The Bible was also very clear that some would be spared and while many were taken. Get right with God while you can. Man's folly will drown you in the lake of fire.
