Lethal Fires Drive Horses, Dogs, Even Llamas To Safety

Joni Prather was tending store at the Yogi Bear campground outside this tiny mountain town when she saw the puff of smoke.

"Grass fire," she thought.


FOR THE RECORD: In the Sept. 20 California section, an article about the evolution of Northern California's Valley fire included a statement by a Middletown resident who said he watched a patrolling law enforcement officer drive by and shoot his dog. The resident now says that he did not witness the shooting. The dog is recovering at UC Davis veterinary school.
