ABC News obtained video from the LA Times of Jan and John. They say they survived the firestorm Monday morning by running out of their home and into their neighbor's swimming pool in Santa Rosa.

They used a wet t-shirt to protect their faces from burning embers. They also went under periodically to keep from being burned alive.

The Pascoes were in the pool for six hours before the fire died down.
