A man who was trying to protect his city from a possible wildfire in Spain fell into the flames and his clothes burned in a bid to save his life.

Angel Martin Arjona, owner of a construction warehouse in northwestern Zamora state, was airlifted to hospital with severe burns after his miraculous escape.

Mr. Arjona was digging a trench in the field as a buffer to stop the approaching fire when the sea of ​​fire closed in on him.

The footage shows him speeding around the perimeter before taking a turn near a fence, at which point the dig is engulfed in heavy fire and smoke and disappears from view.
