Cell phone video shot by a California family chronicles their harrowing escape from the Valley Fire as it burned near their home in Anderson Springs.
A woman and her husband happened to visit his mother, alerting her to the fire after spotting smoke in the distance.
They spent time packing, time it turns out they really didn't have.
The woman says they never received a mandatory evacuation order, and there was no sign the fire was so close until they had to drive through it to leave.
No one in the family was hurt.
