Drone footage captured devastation left by the third-deadliest fire in California state history this week.
Video of Santa Rosa shows entire neighborhoods decimated to rubble. In one shot, a handful of black, barren tree trunks stand tall in a community of ashes. Melted cars appear in what might have been a driveway next to mangled metal that once was a community. Homes have been reduced to mangled metal.
Massive wildfires leave destruction across California
Fires are still ranging in California. In total, at least 31 people have died, making this week the deadliest for California wildfires on record. As the fire swept over more than 191,000 acres, it also burned at least 3,500 structures — many homes — to the ground.
