The California National Guard rescued hundreds of people trapped at the Mammoth Pool Reservoir in central California as a fast-moving wildfire swept through the area:

Great work, everyone:

In total, 224 people were rescued from the blaze:

Earlier in the night, they were told to shelter-in-place at the reservoir and, if needed, jump into the water to avoid the flames:

Photos and video of the scene were horrifying:

It’s scary to think, but one of these days one of these videos will go viral but the person filming it won’t be so lucky:

Terrifying:

Again, great work!
