Happy news about animals
by Neil Clarkson
Appaloosa mare Pearl was the last remaining horse in a three-storey barn ablaze in Pennsylvania. Burning embers rained down in her smoke-filled stall as firefighters played water on the blaze in a bid to control it.
The North Strabane Fire Department was put in charge of large animal rescue and they were not about to let Pearl down.
Welsh-born firefighter Paul Williams strode into her stall, placed a rope around her neck, and led her to safety.
Firefighters from four departments were called to the Greenmor Commons Equestrian Centre in Cecil Township, Washington County, last night.
