The deputy’s bodycam continued to roll as he began to evacuate residents from the Oregon Road Fire which devastated the area. 

In the eight-minute video, which was cut down by the department for time and language purposes, Deputy Morgan can be seen talking with a man who was attempting to save his horse.

The unidentified person refuses to leave the property and Morgan confirms that the man at least has a ride to get out before leaving the scene himself. 

The deputy breaks out into a jog heading back toward his vehicle, hopping in, and taking off. 

At one point, Morgan can be seen driving behind another car and urging the other vehicle to move faster as they drive straight through the flames. 

Bright orange hues surround the deputy as trees and forestry are lit ablaze. 

Smoke completely obstructs Deputy Morgan’s windshield as he is driving and the fire appears to be mere feet away from his driver’s side door. 

Several minutes later, the deputy encounters a man attempting to drive in the direction of where he was coming from, which prompts a strong response. 

‘It’s headed right for us, man, I was just there,’ he says. 

‘Unless you wanna die, hurry up and go,’ Morgan screams at the truck driver.

The video then jumps forward several minutes and shows Deputy Morgan once again encountering the man from the beginning of the video. 

The man had gotten into his vehicle and fled from the original scene.

‘Oh thank you, bro, I was so worried about you,’ Morgan says.  

The unidentified man appears to be crying as the law enforcement agent approaches him  

‘I know you’re probably sad for your horse right now, I’m glad you’re alive, Morgan continues.

The video struck a chord with dozens of Facebook users who were shocked by the video and shared their gratefulness for the law enforcement official. 

‘HEROS ALL AROUND,’ wrote one person. 

‘That is so intense. You can tell that officer has so much heart. I’m so glad he was safe and that the other people got out,’ another shared. 

‘Lost my house in the Oregon Rd fire. It sounded like a jet engine roaring in your ears!!’ wrote Facebook user LeAnna Wallace-Hunt. 

‘Thank you to all the officers that help evacuate my family, neighbors and friends. It was one if the most terrifiying days of my life,’ Wallace-Hunt continued.
