As the Dixie Fire swept through Greenville, Calif., Wednesday, leveling its downtown area, a firefighter was photographed saving an American flag from the side of a road with the inferno raging behind him.

A series of images taken by AFP photographer Josh Edelson shows the devastating fire and the destruction left behind the following morning in the historic town, which was established during the California Gold Rush.

Several images show the moments when a firefighter reached for the flag, removed it from its pole, and carried it to safety as flames twice as tall as the firetruck raged behind him.

Fantasy Football draft prep: Count Mike Evans, Josh Jacobs and Aaron Rodgers among Dave Richard's busts

  Fantasy Football draft prep: Count Mike Evans, Josh Jacobs and Aaron Rodgers among Dave Richard's busts Making the case to pass on 10 prominent playmakers in Fantasy Football this fall.Christian McCaffrey's 13-game absence last year will mean his coaches will limit his touches! Dalvin Cook is overdue to miss playing time with a substantial injury (plus look how well Minnesota threw the ball last year)! Alvin Kamara will turn to dust without Drew Brees! Derrick Henry is human and has had over 400 touches in consecutive years! Travis Kelce cannot possibly be the top tight end in PPR leagues for a sixth straight season, can he?!

HOT, GUSTY WEATHER COULD MEAN EXPLOSIVE FIRE GROWTH IN WEST

Authorities were not immediately able to identify the firefighter or his unit. A huge number of firefighters have deployed to battle the massive fire, the sixth-largest in California history and the biggest one so far this year.

A Wednesday Facebook post from the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office warned people in the area, "you are in imminent danger and you MUST leave now!!"

The fire sparked three weeks ago and encompassed more than 504 square miles in the counties of Plumas and Butte as of Thursday evening. Hot, dry conditions and whipping winds have exacerbated the situation, along with dry underbrush.

It devastated Greenville.

"The Dixie Fire burnt down our entire downtown," Plumas County Supervisor Kevin Goss wrote in a Facebook post Thursday. "Our historical buildings, families’ homes, small businesses, and our children's schools are completely lost."

In another post, he shared two photos of a street running through town. One showed tidy buildings and a couple of cars parked along the shoulder on a sunny day. The other showed one side of the street leveled by fire and the other aflame.

Three bold predictions for 2021 Steelers: Najee Harris propels Pittsburgh to second straight division crown .
Outside expectations may be lower, but the standard is still the standard in PittsburghSuffice to say, I felt pretty good about each bold prediction 11 games into the 2020 season. Pittsburgh was the NFL's last unbeaten team, largely on the play of Roethlisberger and the pass-rush prowess of Watt. Things went off the track after that. The Steelers won just one of their final six games that included a 48-37 loss to the Browns in the wild card round. Big Ben staggered to the finish line and was ultimately passed over for NFL Comeback Player of the Year by Alex Smith. Watt led the NFL with 15 sacks but came in second to Aaron Donald for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
