California firefighters have been battling the inferno despite heavy Santa Ana winds fueling the fire along the northern and western edges of Los Angeles.

Eerie footage posted on Twitter shows the key 405 Freeway corridor leading to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) surrounded by flames as commuters continue to pass through despite the semi-apocalyptic surroundings.

Cars can be seen proceeding down the freeway in spite of the ominously close flames burning through the dry terrains of the motorway valley.

California Governor Jerry Brown declared a state of emergency, freeing state funds and resources to assist the more than 1,000 firefighters battling to save homes and businesses from the conflagration.

Mr Brown said in a statement: ”This fire is very dangerous and spreading rapidly, but we’ll continue to attack it with all we’ve got.

“It’s critical residents stay ready and evacuate immediately if told to do so.”

Fires have now consumed more than 50,500 acres of land, according to fire officials, after hot, dry Santa Ana winds fanned the flames yesterday.

The fire has since led to the closure of the 405 freeway and triggered evacuation orders for 200,000 people after the destruction of nearly 200 homes.

The wildfire ignited in the early hours of December 5 in the Bel Air and Holmby Hill neighbourhood of Los Angeles and has since destroyed some of the priciest properties in the city.

The blaze – fueled by 50mph winds – is increasingly growing and threatening the famous Getty Museum, which lies near the 405 freeway.

Ralph Terrazas, chief of the Los Angeles Fire Department, said: “This is a multi-day weather event projected to last until Friday. This is only just begun.”

    More of the harbingers to come since 9/11 (various weather disasters, economic melt downs, terrorism, etc) and much more to come. The hammer has dropped on America and other nations for apostasy. (ref to: Jonathan Cahn you tube the harbinger, etc)
