Terrifying Time-lapse: Mountains Engulfed by Wildfire

This terrifying time-lapse video reveals how a wildfire has engulfed the city of Portland.

Hundreds of residents have been evacuated as it ravaged the picturesque Columbia River Gorge and sent burning embers raining on communities miles away.

The so-called Eagle Creek Fire, which has burned 10,000 acres since it broke out on Saturday, has torn through timber in the gorge, destroying landmarks in one of the Pacific Northwest’s most prized natural areas.

The blaze was one of 81 large fires burning in the United States on Wednesday, with more than 28 burning in Montana and nearly 20 in Oregon, according to the National Interagency Fire Centre.
