In most cases when we see a forest fire all we see is a lot of smoke. It's actually rare for the average person to witness, first hand, a raging fire.

One of the best ways to get a good idea of what is going on with the fire is to shoot time lapse video of the fire.

Here are some of the best time lapse forest fire videos we could find.
