Horses were evacuated from the Irvine Regional Park in Orange, California, on October 9, ahead of several wildfires that scorched the area. Twenty-four structures were destroyed and 7,500 acres burned in Orange County alone, according to reports. A rider could be heard in this video saying, “It’s OK buddy, it’s OK. We’re going to get out of here” and smoke could be seen in the background. Animal shelters were preparing for evacuations starting Monday. The wildfires across Northern California started early in the week. Since then, the death toll has rose to 21 and more than 160,000 acres have been burned, according to the Los Angeles Times.
