The situation is especially tricky for the owners of a horse ranch in the Sierra Foothills. They had to move all 15 of their horses about 30 miles away from the fire zone, and are worried about what could happen to the property they have dedicated their lives to if the winds keeps shifting.
Cheri Bunney, the owner of The Slide Mountain Guest Ranch, was advised Friday to evacuate.
"We take it seriously because it takes several trips to get the livestock out so we started hauling them out on Friday," said Bunney, who said the horses have an instinct when they smell fire.
"We did unfortunately lose our oldest and most favorite horse the morning of the evacuation, so that was a little sad for us," said Bunney.

An acknowledgement of a victory: Miley Cyrus, you won. Your nearly naked assault of a foam finger on national television is receiving the onslaught of media attention that you most probably expected when you planned the nearly naked assault of a foam finger on national television. But your victory will not be complete, because we are taking a stand here on "CNN's The Lead with Jake Tapper."
United Nations inspectors are in Syria, trying to determine whether chemical weapons were used in an attack last week. But remarks from Secretary of State John Kerry indicate the U.S. has already come to a conclusion about what happened.
"The indiscriminate slaughter of civilians, the killing of women, and children, and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. By any standard, it is inexcusable, and despite the excuses and equivocations that some have manufactured, it is undeniable," Kerry said Monday.
Last August, President Barack Obama said the use of chemical weapons in Syria would be a red line. Just over a year later, tens of thousands of lives have been lost.
"Secretary Kerry went far out on a limb, both in the content and ... the tone," said Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations. "I would frankly be surprised and then some if the United States now did not – probably together with a few other countries – take some military action."
