When they tried to drive away in separate trucks, they were confronted by a wall of flames blocking the main road, so they retreated to their home before running to the neighbor's property.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the couple from Santa Rose found themselves trapped Monday with nowhere to run as the fire quickly approached their neighborhood.

Shortly after midnight on Monday morning, John Pascoe, 70 and his wife Jan, 65, received a call from their older daughter telling them they needed to evacuate, reported the Los Angeles Times. "But the issue always was, how far away is it?" It's the deadliest series of wildfires in the state's history, and the largest fires remain nearly completely uncontained. "I started screaming", their daughter, Zoe Giraudo, 38, told the LA Times. "I have alerts on my phone". But after days of raging blazes left at least 23 dead, authorities said those methods will be assessed after some residents complained those warnings never got through. "When you're cremated, you can't get an ID". The Pascoes still had no idea how widespread the fires were.

"The heat was "whoa" John said.

The Pascoes jumped into their vehicle, grabbed their cat, and attempted to make their escape.

The pair held off as long as they could, but when their neighbour's house and the trees and wooden detailing around the pool began to burn, they got into the cold and filthy water.

Their home, along with their neighbors' houses, was gone.

"Get anywhere safe", the dispatcher responded.
