Wildfires are blazing through California right now, and thousands of people have been forced to evacuate their homes.

The Safari West Park and animal preserve in Santa Rosa was told to evacuate as the flames moved toward them, but Peter Lang, the owner and founder of the park, refused to leave the animals to their own devices. Armed with only a garden hose, he used that to keep the flames away from the animals as the fire blazed around them.

Because of his efforts, they didn’t lose a single member of their animal family. They all made it through the fires safe and sound!
