Body Cam Video Shows Daring Rescue

A Butte County Sheriff deputy's body camera captures a rescue from the Camp Fire where the deputy thought they wouldn't make it out.

Deputy Aaron Parmlet was looking for four nurses at Feather River Hospital who needed help evacuating.

He was surrounded by flames and couldn't see more than 10 feet, because of the smoke and flames. 

His car broke down and started looking for the nurses on foot.

Parmlet eventually saw the shadows of the nurses.

A bulldozer arrived as they were trying to find their way out and gave them a ride to safety.

The Camp Fire was the most destructive fire in state history, burning for 18 days and incinerating thousands of homes and other structures.
