Firefighters have almost totally contained the fire near my farm. They risked their lives to save so many homes & animals. I'm so grateful.

Ellen and Portia purchased the 6,300 square foot horse ranch back in 2009 for $10M; fulfilling a lifelong dream to own a quiet retreat. “It’s our dream that we’ll end up in a sweet country town on a farm,” Portia said earlier that year. “I love horses and riding and love animals and Ellen loves animals. It would be lovely for us. It’s what we’re going to do when we’re not working anymore.”
Firefighters say they expect to have the blaze full contained by late Tuesday. Investigators ruled out arson as the cause.
