Firefighter Paul Williams rescues Appaloosa mare Pearl from blazing barn in PA.

“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… 

With members of the Northern Strabane red team watching his back, as the risk of building collapse grew even greater, Williams walked in, placed a rope around her neck, and led her from the blazing building. The barn, which had feed and equipment stored on its upper levels, was destroyed. 

Pearl escaped with some burns about her head and neck, and is now recovering in another barn at the facility. She is being monitored by a vet for smoke inhalation.”  Full story from Horsetalk
