A Hawaii resident filmed the moments earlier than his household residence was overcome by fireplace in Lahaina, on the island of Maui.
Ronnia Pilapil shared two movies with the BBC saying he felt fortunate simply to be alive.
After sending his spouse and nine-year-old away, Mr Pilapil, 38, had tried to struggle the flames himself utilizing a backyard hose.
However when the wind turned so robust that the water began to fly again into his face, he determined to run away to security.
