A pair of U.S. Marines and their friends heading back from a road trip last week made a pit stop to save an Oregon man's burning home during the state's deadly wildfires.
The group was driving through what they described as "hell" near Estacada, Ore., on Labor Day, Sept. 7, when they spotted firefighters battling a fire.Video posted online shows at least one of the group members -- wearing shorts -- holding a sprinkler within feet of the blaze.
"The smoke's in my eye!" he is heard shouting.
"Get that whole bush wet!" another person yells.
Others lend a hand by supplying buckets of water and at least one person jumps a fence, according to the video.
OREGON WILDFIRES STILL RAGE, BUT RED CROSS, SALVATION ARMY SEE SIGNS OF HOPE
Louie Bec, one of the Marines in the video, said he noticed the large fires and just wanted to help.
"We saw a fire approaching a man’s house and firefighters were fighting another fire so we helped him," he told Storyful. “I didn’t want to see that guy’s house go down."
The official Twitter account of the U.S. Marine Corps appeared to get word out about their actions Wednesday night, posting the caption: "Facing Fire."
"As the wildfires blaze across the West Coast, two off-duty Marines sprang into action to help an Oregon man who found his home in the path of destruction," the Marine Corps wrote.
Users on Twitter responded to the post, thanking the Marines for putting their lives at risk in order to help local residents.

"Semper Fi. True American heroes," one user wrote.
"US Marines are awesome." another wrote.
Estacada -- a city of about 3,700 residents in Clackamas County, about 30 miles southeast of Portland -- was under a Level 2 evacuation order Wednesday night as crews continued to fight the Riverside Fire and other blazes in the area.
Level 2 means a significant danger exists, and residents are advised to relocate to a shelter outside the affected area, or "be ready to evacuate at a moment's notice," according to the State of Oregon.

A Level 3 evacuation had been issued in the area Sept. 8, just one day after the group fought blazes in the city, according to Clackamas County's Twitter account.

During last night's episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Wendy talked about her dating life after a fan asked her "a couple of details" about her new man.
"I haven't been seeing a new man on Instagram," the 56-year-old said.
"I've been showing you pictures of me with friends and when I do find the man, he will not be on my Instagram. That's one thing I won't be doing."6Andy Cohen agreed that things were lonely in HollywoodCredit: YouTube/Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen
She addressed Andy Cohen specifically: "Andy, it's lonely in these streets. You throw yourself back into work, I've got Meowie and Chit-Chat back home. I can't wait to get back into dating and I won't lie about it.
"And I won't do is getting involved with putting him on this show, putting him on Instagram, no no."6Nene Leakes and Wendy Williams had another falling outCredit: Refer to Caption
Dring the same WWHL episode, Andy and Wendy talked Nene Leakes' departure from RHOA when the daytime show host claimed any other spin-off with the OG housewife would be boring.
This annoyed Nene who went off on Twitter and claimed Wendy was a "cocaine head" and Andy was a "racist."6Fans believe Wendy is dating as she posts pictures like thisCredit: Instagram / @wendyshow
Back in early September, Wendy posted on Instagram a snap of her and a friend traveling to the Hamptons for Labor Day weekend.
She posted a selfie of her sporting a black face mask and shield while sitting in the passenger seat in a car.
The mystery man, who was driving the car, appeared in the corner of the photo.
Wendy captioned the snap: "I'm happy in the Hamptons with my special friend FOR Labor Day weekend. He's hot...Caror!"
Wendy was granted a divorce from her ex-husband Kevin Hunter by a judge in January.
The former couple sold their New Jersey mansion for less than $1.5 million in August, which was put on the market in 2019 for $2 million.6Wendy recently got her divorce from ex-husband Kevin HunterCredit: Getty - Contributor
Wendy will keep their Florida home, while Kevin will keep the proceeds of a house in Morristown, New Jersey.
According to documents, Wendy and Kevin will each receive 50% profits of the sale of the home, which had 5,700 square feet of land, with five bedrooms.
The pair, who were married for 22 years, also shared a production company.
Court documents show that Kevin will sell his half to Wendy via a lump sum and a severance package, although the figures remain confidential.6The two share a sonCredit: Getty Images - Getty
Wendy's latest selfie is not the first time her fans have wondered who the new man in her life is.
Back in August, the talk show host posted two pictures of a steak and baked potato dinner and an empty plate.
She wrote: "He brought dinner for the convention. This is my porterhouse veggie plate.

Fans speculated who the mystery man was, with one person writing: "Looks yummy and who IS he?"
Another added: "Who is he and what is he to you? Just kidding. Keep your private life private."
And before that, she had been rumored to be dating DJ Boof, whom she fired before the start of the season.
He had been caught wearing the previous night's clothes as Wendy filmed the show from her home.
