First responders drove through flames to spread the evacuation order and rescue residents.
"Sir, you gotta go," one yells.
The 15 fires in wine country have devastated over 212,000 acres and taken 36 lives so far, with over 200 reported missing. Firefighters have gained some control over the flames, but they have also been exacerbated by gusts of wind since they began a week ago, making the fires some of the deadliest in California's history.
