Family Flees Fast-Moving Wildfire in National Park: 'We Didn't Have Time to Think'
Dramatic cell phone video shows how a family was forced to flee as a fast-moving wildfire grew in Montana’s Glacier National Park.
The Duncan family had pulled over in their car to film the more than 4,000-acre fire when suddenly the flames started to advance towards them.
A teenager behind the camera says: "I don't want to die in flames."
INSIDE EDITION spoke to the teenager, Lakota Duncan, and his parents about their harrowing vacation ordeal.
“I was pretty scared," Lakota said. "You could tell by the panic in my voice.”
His mom added that she was just trying to keep her family calm as they fled the wildfire, which has forced hundreds to evacuate.
“It just excelled so quickly that we didn't have time to think about our reaction. As a mother I was trying to console, inside I thought, ‘This is not good,’” she said.
Another raging wildfire is burning near California’s famed wine country in the Napa Valley and massive evacuations have been ordered.
Fire engines and airplanes are responding to the 6,000-acre blaze with water drops while some homeowners are trying to use water hoses to douse flames.
The inferno comes after four years of drought and unpredictable winds.
