Fire Beach

New videos show how the devastating wildfires in southern Turkey are turning sandy beach resorts into a scene straight out of an apocalyptic movie.

One video shows residents evacuating a beach while a massive wall of fire shoots gargantuan clouds of dark smoke high into the sky.

Regions across the entire globe are currently on fire, from the Bootleg Fire in Oregon to remote regions of Siberia that are spreading smoke all the way to the North Pole.

Some of the fires are large enough to create their own weather patterns, triggering freak lightning storms and allowing fire clouds to form.
