Dramatic video captured the Yarnell, Ariz., wildfire, which took the lives of 19 firefighters and continues to devastate homes and the dry, baked hills.

The Yarnell fire began its rampage on Friday when it was sparked by lightning and has since consumed over 8,300 acres and 200 homes. By Monday morning, containment of the erratic fire remained at zero.

A time-lapse video, created and posted to YouTube by Matt Oss, shows the Yarnell fire burning outside the small town. Oss created the video out of 20 minutes of footage taken on Sunday, June 30 of 2013, at 4 p.m. MST. The video illustrates the unpredictable changes in wind direction that make the conditions of the Yarnell fire extremely dangerous.
