Former 10TV anchor Andrea Cambern talked to the station as she was evacuated from her Santa Barbara home amid the growing Thomas Fire.

Cambern told the station over the phone that her family was given an evacuation order over the weekend.

“Yesterday morning it got worse in a minute, and suddenly we found ourselves in a huge billowing cloud of smoke literally looming over our house. Oh my God! It was the scariest thing. It was like Armageddon. It was the scariest thing. I can’t even … I can’t even describe what it was like but we got the notice get out now,” Cambern said.

Cambern was an anchor at the CBS affiliate in Columbus through 2012. She has since relocated to Santa Barbara. The station has done a number of stories on her journey after WBNS.
