By now, we all know about the Southern California fire that burned through more than 1,500 acres in the San Gabriel Mountains early Thursday morning, but imagine waking up and seeing it across the street when you step out the door.
That was the experience of redditor TheycallmeHollow, who snapped a photo of the blaze and posted it to the front page of the Internet.
“I woke up to hell this morning outside my front door.(SoCal),” TheycallmeHollow wrote. The post has earned nearly 4,000 upboats and nearly 2,000 comments, the best of which point out the obvious parallels between the fire and the 2013 Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg film This Is The End.
“you need to get to James Franco’s house asap,” wrote MileHighCard. TheNeutralParty followed with this:
As for the SoCal fire, KTLA reports:
“The Colby Fire had burned 1,700 acres and destroyed two homes after breaking out at approximately 5:50 a.m [PST], according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.”
“The blaze began near the intersection of Glendora Mountain Road and Colby Motorway, and was ‘spreading fairly aggressively,’ said Inspector Scott Miller.”
“The three suspects, including a homeless man from Los Angeles, ‘were tossing papers into [a] campfire and a breeze reportedly kicked up and set this fire,’ Glendora Police Chief Tim Staab said at news conference.”
Not hell, reddit. But hell of a sight, for sure.
