Disaster Struck During A Car Ride – The Terrifying Moment Was Caught On Film
The return of warm weather brings the certain return of uncontrolled wildfires. The last few fire seasons have not been especially good for regions in the western United States. While it”s probably we still have a few more months until peak wildfire season, it”s already in full swing in other parts of the world.
Before this month, residents in the southern Russian city of Chita (near the Mongolian border) found themselves in a desperate scenario. A little wildfire immediately became a blazing inferno in one of the city”s suburbs due to very high winds. Residents had no choice but to make a desperate escape through the fires by automobile, as seen in the dashboard cam video below.

The local government of Chita has called on nearby towns to supply volunteer fire fighters as the fires continue to rage and support. Let”s hope they”re able to quell the blaze before it gets too close to the city and the 300,000 individuals residing there.
