California is currently being ravaged by a devastating wildfire that has already claimed the lives of 42 people. More than 7,100 structures, most of them homes, have been destroyed, and more than 200 people have been reported missing. Friends and family members of those missing are taking to social media to help find their loves ones, and President Trump is facing criticism for what many perceive as a weak response to the deadliest fire in the state’s history.

In the wake of so much terror and loss, one man has committed an incredible act of bravery in an effort to save lives. According to New York Times reporter Jack Nicas, a nurse named Allyn Pierce drove straight through the raging flames in order to help set up a makeshift hospital.
