WATCH| Rescuers work frantically to free horses from burning barn

BONSALL, Cali. (WKYT) - Rescuers worked tirelessly to free horses from the burning barns at the San Luis Rey Training Center on December 7. The Bonsall, California, center was in the path of the Lilac Fire, which grew from 50 acres to more than 4,000 in a matter of hours.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, at the first, the barn evacuation was orderly, but the wind picked up suddenly causing embers to quickly engulf barns. The workers were forced to release the horses. Some horses did not survive.
