BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Vacaville Police Department shared a video on Facebook on Sunday, detailing the race against the clock that police had as the Nelson Fire raced towards the town.
The Solano SPCA was looking as though it would be the first to be hit by the fire, and so officers, the humane animal services, SPCA staff and volunteers worked to evacuate the animals as quickly as possible.
Officers put as many cats and dogs as they could in their own vehicles and said that all sixty animals are in foster homes now.
The SPCA Solano said that their buildings appear to have gone unscathed.
The Nelson Fire which burned over 2,000 acres is 100-percent contained.
