Firefighters at Grampians National Park in Victoria, Australia filmed their drive through a massive, hell-like blaze.

The wildfire is one of many that have killed thousands of sheep, destroyed thousands of acres of land and caused residents to flee in southern Australia.

The video, shot on Jan. 17 by Daryl Maslen, shows a landscape resembling a post-apocalyptic Hollywood set. Sparks dart past the windshield. Everything, even the sky, is a bright shade of orange.

Since then, the wildfires have largely been contained, according to a Jan. 21 update from Australia's Country Fire Authority. At least one person died as a result of the fires, Agence France-Presse reports.
