This terrifying time-lapse video reveals how a wildfire has engulfed the US city of Portland.
Hundreds of residents have been evacuated as it ravaged the picturesque Columbia River Gorge and sent burning embers raining on communities miles away.
The so-called Eagle Creek Fire, which has burned 10,000 acres since it broke out on Saturday, has torn through timber in the gorge, destroying landmarks in one of the Pacific Northwest’s most prized natural areas.
"Our hearts are breaking," Multnomah County Chair Deborah Kafoury said at a news conference.
"The Gorge is Oregon’s crown jewel."
