This incredible timelapse video shows a devastating forest fire sweep though woodland destroying everything in its path. 

(RA) According to dailymail.co.uk: The raging wildfire took hold in the Columbia River Gorge area of Washington state, 52 miles east of Portland, Oregon.

The video was shot from Monday night to Tuesday morning as the fire and smoke terrified residents.

One resident Maryjane Carlson has been unable to relax for weeks.

The artist lives in Brookings, a small city along the southern Oregon coast that’s threatened by one of the nation’s largest wildfires. Carlson and her neighbors never know when the blaze is going to move closer to the wooded town.

‘It’s overwhelming,’ she said Wednesday. ‘It’s kind of like living in a war zone.’

In addition to the fear of the flames, smoke never leaves. An asthmatic, Carlson had to buy an air purifier and sometimes covers her face with a mask.

Thousands of residents have evacuated as firefighters battle blazes statewide, including one devastating hiking trails and waterfalls in the scenic Columbia River Gorge.

Officials expect the fire near Brookings to burn for at least another month. The weather is a wild card in a region accustomed to rain and fog. If it’s hot and dry, it will be a scary September.

‘We don’t know what the weather’s going to do, and half the problem is that uncertainty,’ Carlson said.
