Local news storm trackers rescue man from wildfire as flames creep in

High winds fueling fast-moving wildfire in Oklahoma

 

A local news team's storm tracker and his wife rescued a man from a raging fire in Oklahoma Tuesday while the camera rolled, according to News 9.

Val and Amy Castor were tracking the wildfires when he saw the man inside a road grader, and realized the worker was not going to make it out of a ditch. 

The man jumped into the Castors' truck right before the fire spread to the grader.

"Come on, guy, get out! Come on," the wife can be heard saying.

Val Castor said they could feel the heat from the fire when they pulled up to the grader, and floored the truck once the man jumped in.

"God was watching out of us, for sure," he added.
