He was told the fires were coming.
He was told to get the hell out of there.
But this man was on a mission, and wouldn't head for safety without first checking on the 50 elderly residents he knew were on his route.
Paradise, California resident Dane Cummings works for Waste Management and as wildfires ripped through the area, and thousands of people fled, he made the choice to drive into the fire. As the area descended into chaos, Cummings hit his final stop... And discovered Margaret!
Margaret was stranded at home, recovering from a broken back with no way to escape the impending doom. He carefully loaded her into the cab of his truck and the two got outta there just in time.
He says he's no hero, but I beg to differ!
