50-Acre Wildfire Erupts In Los Angeles & Continues To Rage — Here's What's Going On

Filed under: Kim KardashianScary!Viral: News

Getty Fire

This is terrifying!

We're hoping everyone in Los Angeles is staying safe as a 50-acre fire continues to rage through the steep slopes of Sepulveda Pass — which has now shut down the heavily-traveled Interstate 405 through the Santa Monica Mountains.

Unfortunately, the fire has been uncontrollable due to the extremely high winds — thus causing water-dropping planes and helicopters to be grounded. More than 220 firefighters have been battling the fire, which is fast-growing with winds over 25 mph.

Whoa!!!

Richard Hammond, the former host of the infamous Top Gear television show, was injured and closely escaped a far worse fate when his race car crashed on Saturday in Switzerland and burst into flames.

The 47-year-old driver was racing today in a segment for his Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour, when his electric car lost control and flipped down over a hill.

Luckily, Hammond was able to climb out of the car before it burst into flames — he allegedly suffered a fractured knee, and was airlifted to the hospital, but based on the completely charred and burned-out car that was the result… things could have been worse.

Here's video from the apparent crash, showing Hammond losing control right before a turn on a hill (below):

We can't even imagine waking up to this situation.

When Shelby Carter realized her house was engulfed in flames, investigators estimate she sprung into action within the span of mere seconds to save her newborn daughter, Keana Davis.

The 21-year-old mother knew she couldn't escape the second floor, so she did the only thing she could — she smashed a window, strapped 12-day-old Keana into her car seat, and tossed her out of the burning building.

Wyoming-Speer Fire Protection District chief Ed Foglesonger said:

"It's just incredible that she was able to pull her thoughts together to save her baby. It's just too bad she couldn't save herself; but I'd say it's nothing short of a miracle the way it ended up."

Miracle is the right word for it. Rescuers found the child in her seat atop a pile of rubble outside the fire (below):
