Raw Video: Family Records Harrowing Escape From Fire

On Monday, a family outside Denver, Colorado barely escaped the wildfire that's killed at least two people and burned 27 homes. And their 13-year-old son Kaleb got it escape on video

The part where they're driving through it is only 30 seconds long, but you can hear how panicked Kaleb's nine-year-old sister was: The sky was completely black, embers were everywhere, and the woods next to the road were glowing orange and yellow.

Their mother Kim Olsen says that at that point, she was thinking, quote, "[It's] too late. It's just too late. We're just not going to make it."
