The raging wildfires in Northern California have caused fatalities and immense amounts of property damage. In Yuba County, two roommates found themselves in a terrifying situation, facing certain death as the fires engulfed the area surrounding their home, and pulled off an escape that’s more remarkable than the final scene of a Hollywood movie.
The video shows the the men attempting to figure out a way to safety, as they are overcome by flames, smoke, and burning embers from the wind stoking the blaze. In a fight or flight moment, they make it to a vehicle and miraculously gun it out of the hellscape. They can be overheard saying they weren’t given any warning the fire was headed their way, and were completely caught off guard.
This is as intense of a situation as you’ll ever see. There’s a lot of explicit language, but it’s literally life or death, so, completely understandable.
