DFC Garrett Parrish and DFC Bryant Ovalles Vasquez went into action, using a pocketknife to free the man from his seatbelt, and were able to pull him to safety.

The flame’s heat was described as unbearable, according to the sheriffs’ office, which prevented the deputies from being able to remain near it for an extended period of time.
