Wildfires continue to burn their way through Southern California, turning large swaths of the state into towering infernos and forcing thousands to evacuate their homes and businesses. The blazes, which have already torn through more than 65,000 acres of land, have also produced some incredibly dramatic photos and videos, as captured by local news crews, commuters and residents.

Here are some of the most jarring scenes from the Southern California wildfires.

NBC News tweeted this arresting footage of the blaze along the I-405 freeway.
