WATCH: Dramatic Video Shows Firefighters Save 14-Year-Old Girl After Home Collapses in CA Mudslides

Firefighters pulled a teenage California girl from the brink of death after her home was destroyed by mudslides and flooding, Inside Edition reports.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department pulled the 14-year-old girl from the wreckage left of her home in Montecito. She had spent hours waiting for first responders to save her.

The flooding and mudslides have trapped countless people trapped in their homes. More than a dozen people have died in the flooding.

Roads have been closed and thousands of people were evacuated.

“It’s going to be worse than anyone imagined for our area,” Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman Mike Eliason told the Los Angeles Times. “Following our fire, this is the worst-case scenario.”

Last month, the Thomas fire burned through over 250,000 acres, making the area less able to absorb water.

“It looked like a World War I battlefield,” Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told CBS News.
