Residents in Yosemite wildfire's path moving family, animals to safety

The Yosemite wildfire is threatening thousands of homes, and residents are on edge.

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.
