Seventeen devastating wildfires have continued to burn up and down the state of California on Tuesday razing through more than 94,000 acres of land while desperate efforts to quell the expanding inferno have sent tens of thousands of locals fleeing, left millions without power, and turned the ocean in Malibu pink with fire retardant.

The Getty Fire, which erupted Monday in Los Angeles County, is the latest blaze to rage fury in the Golden State and has burned through 618 acres as of Tuesday morning. The fire encroached upon luxurious celebrity neighborhoods sending stars LeBron James, Kate Hudson and Arnold Schwarzenegger seeking shelter.

The fires left 1,065,00 people without power over the weekend and displaced 200,000 people in the San Francisco Bay area due to the Kincade Fire – the most menacing fire in California at the moment.

The Kincade Fire, which ignited on October 23, has swelled to twice the size of San Francisco in just 24 hours from Sunday to Monday, destroying the heart of wine country by scorching a whopping 74,324 acres of land. As of Monday evening the expanding fire was just 15 percent contained.

San Francisco firefighters shared heart-stopping video on Tuesday showing the front window view of a firetruck rushing to the front lines of the fire on a burning hill in Sonoma County, passing through thick smoke, orange flames, and blazing embers.
