A photographer who specializes fires shot some incredible video of firefighters dealing with what must have been hundreds of spot fires. In the dry, windy weather they spread immediately after burning embers blown by the wind fell into grassy areas.
It was shot by 564 Fire at the Ranch Fire, part of the Mendocino Complex of Fires that burned near Clear Lake in northern California in July and August of 2018. The total size of the complex, which included the River and Ranch Fires, was 459,123 acres. The video was uploaded to YouTube June 18, 2019.
