California communities rally to save animals caught in wildfires

( CNN) When Jeff Hill returned to his neighborhood in Paradise, California, after evacuating during the Camp fire, he came across a wayward pony — in a backyard swimming pool. The pony appeared to have jumped in to escape the flames, and was caught in the pond cover.

“We scrambled to unhook the pond covering and pulled her to the shallow aim which is something we guided her up the steps.” The pony get out, shook off, and “loved on us for a few minutes as a thank you, and walked off, ” he wrote.

Hill called for help, and waited with the horse until resources could escort the horse out from the flame zone.
