With his video camera rolling, a Jefferson County man watched his custom home go up in flames Monday afternoon, during the height of the Lower North Fork Fire.

Before capturing video, the man -who does not want to reveal his name- spoke to three of his Kuehster Rd. neighbors on the telephone, two of whom are now dead and the other who is missing.

Sam and Moaneti Lucas were not able to escape from the fast-moving fire Monday afternoon. Ann Appel has not been seen since the fire, and a search for her continues.
