Hikers tried to drive through fire in GNP

2 hikers in Glacier National Park were cut off by wildfire and tried to drive through the flames, then drove back through fire again in reverse, after burning tree blocked their road. They abandoned their car and were rescued by boaters on a lake, in what could turn into a no-escape situation.

Seems like the park dropped the ball on making sure they were ok. They should have sent someone after them IMO.
