Maddison Ridgik and her boyfriend Zach were hosting a family holiday party at their home in Ventura County, California. Sometime during the party, Zach stepped out for a bit so he could pick up some more items at the grocery store.
While Maddison enjoyed wine and snacks with her loved ones, her stepdad ran into the kitchen in a complete panic. He shouted for everyone to evacuate the two-story house as soon as possible.
Confused and frantic, Maddison rushed outside to the front yard. She then turned around to see thick smoke billowing out of her attic and garage. Her home seemingly caught on fire, right in the middle of the celebration!
Zach’s mom called 911, and as the fire truck rounded the corner, Maddison began crying and panicking on the lawn.
But amidst the mass chaos, one of the firemen approached Maddison, grabbing her waist from behind. The second she spun around, he removed his protective mask.
She looked back at him in pure shock.
The whole thing had been staged… and everyone at the party had been in on it except for Maddison.
