BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A woman who went into labor while escaping the Camp Fire has named her baby after the man who saved her.

The mother, Anastasia Skinner, started having contractions while she tried to escape the flames on the Skyway on Nov. 8. 

She was stranded in a parking lot when Mickey Huber, an EMS worker, saved her. 

Now, to thank him for saving her, she named her daughter Zoele Mickey Skinner after Huber. 

Zoele was born on Dec. 12, and you can see Huber holding her two days after she was born in the photo.
