He and his family were on the lazy river when he noticed smoke coming from the parking lot. 

"It was a little devastating because I was hoping it wasn't destroyed or it wasn't going to catch on fire," said Korver. "Whenever I got on scene to see it was just my taillight I was pretty relieved about it that it was just pretty minimal compared to everyone else's."

Now the waiting game from insurance to see how they proceed after the fire investigation is over. 

Korver says despite his military background, the scene he was up close in personal with on Friday was unlike anything he's seen before. 

"It was a little crazy because I've never had anything like this happen to me," he said. "You some crazy stuff in the military just running back and forth between causalities, but I've never seen anything like that."
