Far out west, in the lands once scoured by desperate settlers, a raging inferno exists.
California, the Golden State, is on fire.
This is the land once promised to us by Manifest Destiny, bequeathed to America by the settlers within.
Now, that land of opportunity finds itself ablaze.
Harrowing footage gives a close-up view of wildfire that broke out near I-80 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
California Gov. Newsom has declared a statewide emergency due to "high-wind events which have resulted in fires and evacuations across the state." https://t.co/tdTXKvTtMa pic.twitter.com/q1sVuXFzvy
