Livestock On The Beach For Safety In California

The devastating wildfires in California continue.  An estimated 80 people are still missing, including many in their 80’s and 90’s.  There are three major fires in the state, the Camp Fire in Butte County, the Woolsey Fire in Los Angeles and Ventura County and the Hill Fire in Ventura County. 

This is especially a concern for those with livestock in the fire stricken area.  NewsRadio 11-10 KFAB has learned that many people with horses, donkeys, pigs, alpacas and lamas were told to pack them up and take them to Zuma Beach in Malibu. 

Owners tethered their animals to lifeguard stands, sign posts or whatever they could to protect them.  The owners were nearby and remained in the area keeping careful watch. 

The Camp Fire has burned an estimated 135,000 acres and is about 35% contained.  Three firefighters were injured and 38 deaths have been confirmed.  7,000 homes were destroyed.

The Woolsey Fire has burned more than 97,000 acres and is 47% contained.  Three firefighters were injured and 2 deaths confirmed.   

The Hill Fire burned more than 4,500 acres of land and is 94% contained
