A hospital in California was evacuated just before spreading wildfires threatened the facility.

Surveillance images from the hospital’s parking area show embers and flames blowing across the landscape.

Firefighters can be seen coming in to try and protect Sutter Santa Rosa Regional Hospital’s buildings from being overtaken by flames.

Tens of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes in northern California’s wine county.

More than 40 people have been killed and search teams are still out looking through burned homes for dozens of people are reported as missing.

Nearly 150,000 acres and 6,000 homes and businesses have been destroyed.

And now, new fires have now sprung up in other parts of California including in the mountains northeast of Los Angeles.

That's where flames have been threatening communications towers and the historic Mount Wilson Observatory.
