Sean Ashbrook runs a business in Fresno County supplying vehicles and equipment to customers including Cal Fire. On the night of September 6, he got a close-up view of what some of those very clients were facing, as they tackled the Creek Fire.
Ashbrook was among those evacuated from Shaver Lake and several other communities, as the fire grew to more than 73,000 acres with zero containment.
Ashbrook said he ran home to “grab some last-minute belongings,” putting him in “the perfect spot to shoot” this video showing the fire across the canyon from his house. Credit: Sean Ashbrook via Storyful
