ALPINE, Calif. (KGTV) - An Alpine resident still has her home and her horses, thanks in part to the kind act of two strangers.

Alanna Light saw the smoke an hour and a half before she evacuated.

"In a moment, it went to complete smoke. I couldn't see my barn anymore,” Light said.

She owns four horses but only had room in her trailer for two. Suddenly, strangers came to her door, offering help to move the other horses.

“They came by our house and told us they were friends of my neighbor and we loaded two horses in there and I have no idea where they are right now,” Light told 10News days ago.

During the 10News coverage of the West Fire, Light was relieved when she saw her horses Sophie and Liberty at the Lakeside Rodeo grounds.

Light had a chance to thank the Good Samaritans Cat Davenport and McKensey Middleton Monday.

”I’m amazed this place is still standing. The flames were up in the trees, sparking and you could barely see those trees; only reason you'd see them was the glow of the flames,” Davenport said.
