Michel Chamberland of Fort McMurray was at home sleeping heavily after his night shift at work when a friend phoned and woke him up with news of an evacuation.
He opened his front door saw black smoke and heard the crackling of flames.
He quickly grabbed a few things and jumped into his truck.
His truck dash cam (front and rear view) recorded what took place next.
Thankfully he is now safe in Edmonton at his parents house.
If you’d like to help those residents displaced from their homes and businesses, The Red Cross is taking donations.
