As the Skirball fire lit up the roadside near the 405 Freeway Wednesday morning, these motorists were left in awe at how close they were. One even noted that the windows of the car were hot.
"The whole freeway is shut down on the other side, and every one of us is stuck," one motorist can be heard saying in a video posted to social media, before she expresses her shock.
See their videos in the compilation above.
