Amid California wildfires, a horse's life is saved | MNN - Mother Nature Network

It’s hard to tally the tragic toll of wildfires when many of them still burn out of control. More than 100,000 people are on the move in Southern California, chased by fast-moving fires that even an army of firefighters is struggling to keep in check . Some 11,377 acres of the Angeles National Forest have been scorched. The biggest of those blazes — dubbed the Thomas Fire — has devoured 65,000 acres of farmland. But sometimes, a single act of compassion can tip the scales toward hope. This panicked horse had tried to flee in a fire in Sylmar — only to fall into a crevice. Gina Silva, a news reporter at Fox 11 Los Angeles, was covering the wildfires in the area when she came across the animal. “Horse needs help!!! Stuck in a tiny gap.” she tweeted. Horse needs help!!! Stuck in a tiny gap. Fell running away from fire in Sylmar. 12122 Kagel Canyon. @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/qwRs...
