Anchors Flee Studio in Middle of Broadcast Due to California Wildfires
July 27, 2018
Local news anchors in northern California suddenly announced they needed to abandon the studio on Thursday night because flames were getting close. "It was the scariest experience of my life,” KRCR-TV anchor Tamara Damante told Inside Edition. “Never in a million years did we think we'd be evacuated, as a news station." She said on-air that "it is unsafe to be here" as she was getting ready to evacuate. Damante said flames were only a mile away when they were ordered to get out.
