KVOR reporter Lemor Abrams learned just how fast wildfires move while covering the Carr fire in Redding, Calif. earlier this week.
Abrams and her photographer had to run when an ember jumped the freeway and ignited another fire.
You can see just how close the fire got to their live truck in Abram’s Instagram video:
We’re safe now. Had no warning this blaze was even close to the road. The trees were on fire miles away. We stopped for some distant flame shots. And in a matter of seconds- this happened. Firefighters always tell us about this #newnormal. #California is so dry – it’s burning faster and more ferociously than ever before. We covered the massive #Napa & #Sonoma fires last year. But this one – the #CarrFire in #Redding… is unreal. @cbssacramento #lifeofanewsreporter #Cbs #cawildfires
