Thousands of firefighters across California are risking their lives doing their utmost to battle and bring dozens of wildfires burning across the state under control. 

Destructive blazes broke out in Riverside, Simi Valley, Santa Paula, San Bernardino, and many other locations.

This is a photographic tribute to those on the front lines of the firefight. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
