While most Americans are busy preparing the holiday table or buying Christmas gifts, Los Angeles residents have only one thing in mind – how to save their homes from the fire that hit them. Actor Goran Visnjic is just one of the many concerned
On his Instagram profile, Hollywood actor Goran Visnjic recently shared a frightening video from the 405 freeway, where you can see the fury of fire advancing toward the city. Several fires were raging last week in the Los Angeles area, forcing thousands of people to evacuate.
Croatian-American actor Goran Visnjic, who has been living with his wife Eva and three children on the West Coast for years, is worried about the fire. The video that he posted on his Instagram profile is extremely terrifying.
“This is a sign for Getty museum exit… this is insane… The fires were never this close to the city… Pray for everyone affected by this inferno” Goran Visnjic wrote.
The actor is one of the few from that region who has managed to break into Hollywood and build a long-lasting career. The height of his career was marked by the series ‘E.R’, while in ‘The Counselor’ he played alongside Brad Pit, Javier Bardem, and Michael Fasbender.
In 2017, California was hit by a several, fast-moving fires, out of which the biggest were the Thomas Fire, Creek Fire, Rye Fire, Skirball Fire, and Lilac Fire. So far, the fires have torched nearly 159,000 acres in Southern California and are expected to continue to burn fiercely. Actor Goran Visnjic, as well as most of LA residents, still fear the possible outcome of the worst fire season ever.
The Thomas fire which started in Ventura County on Dec. 4, is the third-largest wildfire in modern California history since accurate recording began in 1932. The wildfire has burned over 270, 00 acres, destroyed more than 1,000 structures and damaged hundreds more, which makes it the seventh-most destructive in structure loss.
‘Timeless’ star Goran Visnjic reports he has never seen a wildfire grow as quickly and with such intensity as the Thomas fire. Fanned by cold, fierce winds coming from Santa Ana and fueled by dead trees and dry brush, the fire is advancing towards Southern California communities, burning through thousands of acres and destroying hundreds of homes.
The fast-spreading fire is causing chaos for homeowners who were forced to evacuate and crowded area freeways from the north and south, east, and west side. The conditions are expected to remain dangerous through the week, although there are many resources set aside to fight this massive blaze. With more than 8,400 firefighters working around the clock to save lives and contain the fire, Goran Visnjic hopes the horror will end soon.
