San Miguel County Sheriff Bill Masters was in the right spot at the right time when an ice dam broke on the San Miguel River on Tuesday.
The wall of water between Fall Creek Road and Placerville forced some people out of their homes and Highway 145 closed for a time.
There were no reports of damage from the water.
