Family Who Lost Best Friend During Fire Returns To See Her Guarding The House!
Leave It All Behind
When the California wildfires spread, residents were forced to evacuate. Many of them left their homes, not knowing if they’d ever see them again. But material things can be replaced. Unfortunately, a life can’t be. This is why the family was so concerned.
Race Against Time
The evacuation warning was given at 4 pm, but this was unlike anything anyone had ever experienced. Within hours, the entire town was in a panic as they took to the roads to escape the approaching threat. This led to bumper-to-bumper traffic that stalled everyone. Meanwhile, the powerful winds brought the fire inches closer to the road.
Leanha was under the mistaken assumption that she would be able to head home to collect some more things, and that included her brown and white border collie named Ella. But as the flames nipped at their tires on the congested road, she, like many others, realized that they wouldn’t be able to come home, which meant Ella was on her own. But the family had an idea to save their pup.
The Mission Failed
Leanha’s eldest daughter, Kayla, was driving from Sacramento to Paradise. So, she was prepared to pick up some more belongings, including Ella. But the fires spread and the situation in Paradise became unpredictable. This made it impossible for Kayla to reach the house. Then, the situation became even more concerning.
“There’s people all of a sudden running out of their cars because traffic’s not moving and the fire, all of a sudden, was that close. Nobody really knew it was going to jump that quickly when all of us were thinking. ‘Oh, it’s aways away, we have a day or more,’ you know?” explained Kayla while imagining how devastated her family would be when they learned that Ella was all alone. But who could save her?
