The Butte County Sheriff’s Office has released body-cam video from the morning the deadly Camp Fire broke out.

The video shows Butte County Sheriff’s Deputy Aaron Parmley attempting to locate four nurses who needed help evacuating from the Feather River Hospital in Paradise. His car became disabled, so he and the others had to walk. They were eventually picked up by a passing firefighting crew.

The Camp Fire started on Nov. 8 and burned 153,336 acres. It was contained on Nov. 25.

To date, the remains of 88 people have been found but search crews are still scouring the burned area.
