With flames just outside his window, he recorded a goodbye message for his family, saying, “Just in case this doesn’t work out, I want you to know I really tried to make it out.” Just then, a bulldozer appeared, clearing a burning vehicle out of Pierce’s way to he could flee. However, he decided to risk his life once more, by returning to the hospital. By the time he and the colleagues made it back to Feather River Hospital, his white truck had burn marks on the sides, at least one of the trucks mirrors was damaged and the lights on the truck were melted.
