Couple spent six hours in pool to survive deadly wildfires

A neighbor’s blackened, debris-filled pool was the only refuge one couple had to escape the California wildfires.

Jan Pascoe, 65, and her husband John had tried to flee their Santa Rosa home early Monday morning but couldn’t escape.

“It was a wall of fire,” Jan told the Los Angeles Times. “We were in survival mode.”
