A NASA photographer set up a bunch of cameras to capture last week's launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

But the launch started a brush fire, which as you can see overtakes and melts the camera, which kept on taking pictures until the very end.

The camera was about a quarter-mile from the launchsite.

Interestingly enough, it was the furthest camera away from the site.

The camera was later found completely charred.

But the memory card was still intact.
