SUNLAND (CBSLA) — While covering the fire in Sunland, CBS2/KCAL9’s Kristine Lazar and her cameraman Marvin Stone stepped in to save horses from the fast-moving flames at Gibson Ranch.

Lazar described the scene as “frantic” and “tense” with thick black smoke and flames making it difficult to breathe for the horses and people on the ranch.

Volunteers were trying to get the horses out and Lazar and Stone helped evacuate the horses. The volunteers had buckets of water trying to put out the flames.

When Lazar and Stone arrived on the scene the flames were spreading fast and the firefighters had not gotten there yet.

Gibson Ranch is a family-owned hoarse boarding and equine event facility.

    Oh man … This is bad! Hopefully, they had enough time to get these horses out. Otherwise, they should have let them go! Horses have a natural instinct to flee! They will find their way! This happened in a Reno, NV fire. Horse owners didn’t have enough time to evacuate but to save the horses, they just let they go! Later on, all the horse were found!

    The owners are too stupid to be allowed to take care of animals. These horses should have been evacuated prior to the fire arriving. This scene repeats itself every year in this state where stupid people live.

    I’m glad the photographer got the not-so-subtle hint to help out.

  5. Amazingly slow response by those on scene. Yes. They should let the horses go if they can’t respond faster than that.

  6. If there ever was a time for cowboys this would be it. They could drive the herd out on horseback.

  7. People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White countries.

    People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  8. This is your product of GEOENGINEERING for 9 months straight 200 miles off the coast that caused the original DROUGHT in the 1st place. You people need to wake UP and stop acting like the powers that be didn’t CAUSE this catastrophe. There are so many nano-particulates saturating the air that HAARP doing it’s thing is just like using a giant magnifier to start these things.

    God bless them all for doing their part! Does anyone have follow up info…were they able to save all the horses?

    As a horse owner, I was so tense watching this video – I’m glad the news crew helped, but there is no way I would have waited the two minutes of filming to do so with the situation so dire. I also cannot understand why the horses weren’t evacuated before this. I’m very glad to see they are all safe, but WOW.
