Father and son drive into a wildfire 4.5
A father and son had a miraculous escape from a wildfire in Glacier National Park in Montana on August 12, when they were forced to drive through the flames, dodging debris and enduring an increasingly hot car.

Justin Bilton told Storyful that he and his father saw the then small Howe Ridge Fire begin to spread from 5 acres to over 2000 in a matter of hours.

“We hiked back to the car to get out where it was parked at the end of a dead end road”, Bilton said. “After we were stopped by the downed tree, we reversed back through all of this and were rescued by two park employees on a boat. They saved our lives”.

It’s crazy how the person driving is 40 years old and the dad is 75 years old. But in this situation it’s like the son is 20 years old and the dad is 40

The comments here are so insensitive to the panic and fear that people fear in this situation. This IS NOT a joking matter. Imagine what the people went through who did not make it out. Raise your humanity and be kind!
