A blaze broke out at a mobile home park in Ridgecrest, near the epicentre of southern California’s 7.1 magnitude earthquake, on Friday.
Footage shows the fire raging on as sirens are heard in the background. Emergency services vehicles are also present on site.
In a press conference earlier on Friday, Director of the California Governor's Office of Emergency Services Mark Ghilarducci noted that... Еще a series of fires had broken out as a result of gas leaks or gas line breaks in the aftermath of the quake.
Friday's earthquake is believed to be the strongest to hit southern California in 20 years.
It followed a 6.4 magnitude quake that hit the area on Thursday.
