Alaskan Bush People's Bear Brown fights 'crazy' fire after flames destroyed the family's $1.6million ranch
ALASKAN Bush People's Bear Brown put himself in the thick of a wildfire as flames ravished his family's property.
Bear, 31, posed in the woods near his family's North Star Ranch in Washington state as the fires raged behind him.
The reality star had his long hair pulled back and was holding a wooden pole, most likely a tool, while looking seriously into the camera.
Flames behind him showed how dangerous the fires in the Okanogan County were.
On Sunday, the promo for the upcoming season of Alaskan Bush People showed the terrifying footage of the massive wildfire that destroyed the Brown family’s home.
Bear wanted his fans to tune into to see for themselves how bad the wildfires were.
He captioned the Instagram post: "Be sure to check out new episodes of Alaskan Bush People! To see what’s been going on in the new season and to see exclusive footage of the wildfire that has swept through our mountain! It’s been CRAZY!"
In August, the famous North Valley Ranch that is the center of the Discovery Channel series was “destroyed” after a large blaze tore through their property in the Washington mountains.
The network teased the scary scene that was captured on camera as the Wolf Pack learned they had just “minutes to evacuate.”
As the dramatic incident was shown, the ABP narrator said: “Three weeks ago, a massive wildfire broke out near the Brown’s property.
“With North Star ranch in its path, the Wolf Pack had just minutes to evacuate.”
Bear – who recently shared a picture of himself covered in soot – is then shown looking horrified as he filmed himself sprinting through the charred woods.
The out of breath dad-of-one appeared stunned as he tried to escape the dangerous area.
Several intense shots are then shown of the land up in smoke as it gets doused with red powder from emergency helicopters.
Bear’s younger sister, Snowbird, 25, is shown breaking down in tears as the blaze rages on the crisped hillside behind her.
“A fire started and we need the wind to not change because the house is on the mountain.
“All the animals are either loose or with us,” she said of the property’s many dogs, horses, cats, cows and other farm animals.
In a later clip, she sobbed as she was in the car with 17-year-old sister Rain as they sped down the street trying to get to safety.
“Everyone is evacuating. But the fire is blocking the road.
"Some of the crew are trying to get the rest of us out but Mom and Dad are still up there,” she said of family patriarch and matriarch Billy and Ami Brown.
On August 19, the Palmer Fire in Washington’s Okanogan County has burned over 6,000 acres of land and evacuated more than 85 houses, according to local reports.
Bear shared the heartbreaking news that North Star Ranch was lost on Instagram: “We suffered a devastating lose yesterday, a fire swept through our mountain, our home!
“The lost seems to be great! It’s still burning! I’ll keep everyone posted! God Bless!”
Bear's rep confirmed to The Sun that "much was lost" from the fire.
"We are very grateful that the family are all safe and have enormous gratitude for the firefighters who made sure of that," the rep added.
In early 2019, Billy and Ami Brown, relocated from their Alaskan home to North Star Ranch in the Washington state wilderness along with their seven children.
According to The Inquisitr, the famous family put their beloved 29-acre "Browntown" home on the market in November 2019 for $795,000.
The TV personality’s kids – Matt, Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Bird, and Rain – were all born and raised in the Alaska residence.
