There's a long running list of terrifying blazes that have not only destroyed the natural landscape and forests in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California, but many people's homes and businesses as well.

And the ongoing mass fires in Los Angeles and Ventura county are some of the worst in the state's history, displacing tons of citizens and providing some of the scariest scenery for commuters on the road.
