Footage shows plumes of smoke rising from the wildfire on Mount Huff in Crescent Mills, California on July 30.

Resident Lara said: ‘The mountain has a scar and it’s sad to see but they fought fire with fire and the homes here along Arlington Road are protected.’

More than 240,000 acres of land have been burned by the Dixie Fire, making it the 11th largest wildfire ever recorded.

The National Interagency Fire Center reported that around 22,000 firefighters have been deployed to active wildfires in several states in America.
