Video shows what Bryn Floraday saw as he tried to leave the day the fire started.

"The last reception I had I sent a video to my wife of me stuck in the fire and I said, 'flames on both sides. Cars catching on fire,' and said, 'you know what I love you. I might make a run for it. I promise you I'll make it out of here alive.'"
