The California wildfires are tragic, yet are dramatic sights to see. While you probably don't want to see them live, Flickr offers a huge database of images taken by the people who are in the middle of the action.
The photo sharing community, Flickr, is increasingly being used as an online news source, offering people inside looks into worldwide events. It offers raw, unscreened and uncensored coverage that people might not be able to get from traditional media.
The images in this gallery all come from Flickr and include images both from this year and last summer's wildfires in California.
