The fires in California have been wreaking havoc on the state and causing massive evacuations and serious damage. It is a stressful and hectic time for the fire rescue teams, but that doesn’t mean they won’t stop and take the time to help animals.

The Sacramento Fire Department happened upon two donkeys on Saturday that were scared and lost on a street near the fires. Without hesitation, they leaped into action to help calm the donkeys and keep them safe until the proper animal rescue team could arrive and evacuate them to a safe location.

In a Facebook post, the Sacramento Fire Department explains, “SFD Fire Chief Gary Loesch and firefighter Chris Harvey came a cross these two donkeys walking down the center of the street looking sad, thirsty and hungry. Animal control was dispatched to rescue the animals and SFD fed them apples while they waited.”
