With temperatures in the 90s and humidity in the single digits, Venture County, California, will get little relief on Friday from a punishing wildfire. The fire, which began early on Thursday morning, has already torched more than 10,000 acres of the area around Los Angeles, and as of Friday morning is less than 10 percent contained. Santa Ana Winds as high as 45 miles per hour are expected during the day, though the weekend is expected to be much cooler.

Fortunately, there have been no casualties reported, but 15 homes have been damaged, including several motorhomes that were destroyed, and many more are in danger. Over 1,000 firefighters have been called into deal with the blaze, which is being fed by years of dead vegetation and deep undergrowth. One fire chief told The Los Angeles Times that the area hasn't seen a major fire in 20 years, which means there's plenty of forest lying around to burn.

While the fire hasn't yet been as destructive as some other recent wildfires, the pictures coming in from local news photographers are some of the most stunning we've seen in a while. Check out some of the more incredible images below:
