Police, Locals Rush to Save Animals from Los Angeles Fires (Warning: Explicit Photo)

Latest news

    Los Angeles Police Department officers, Los Angeles Fire Department firefighters, and local volunteers have been working feverishly to save animals at risk from ongoing fires in the region.

    Authorities reported Thursday that they had made some progress in containing the fires, which include the Skirball fire in west Los Angeles near the 405 Freeway, and the Creek fire near Sylmar, in the San Fernando Valley.

    But the latter fire killed several dozen horses that were tied in their stalls and could not escape the smoke and flames.

    In response to the danger, residents took to social media to ask for, or offer, help in evacuating pets and domestic animals, and to urge each other not to abandon their animals.

    A viral post urged residents to make water available outside their homes for wild animals fleeing their habitat.

    In Ventura County, a woman’s body was found in the wake of a fire in Ojai, marking the first confirmed fatality in the Thomas fire, which has burned across nearly 100,000 acres, according to the Los Angeles Times.
