Woman Rides Horses Through Cold Springs Fire


I’M VERY UPSET. THERE IDIOTS. THE MAN AND WOMAN THEY WERE WITH, THE SHERIFF CALLS TRANSIENTS. THEY ARE AT HIGH RISK SO THEY ARE BEING HELD ON HIGH BOND. ONE WOMAN RISK THE FLAMES TO SAVE HER HORSES. SHE ENDED UP RIDING THEM THROUGH THE FIRE. Reporter: REALLY A REMARKABLE STORY BUT SHE SAYS IT WAS JUST THE RIGHT THING TO DO. SHE SAID SHE COULDN’T LEAVE THE AREA WITHOUT HER HORSES AND IF FACED WITH THE DECISION AGAIN, SHE WOULD DO IT AGAIN. PAM HARRINGTON HAS ALWAYS HAD A SPECIAL BOND WITH HER HORSES. ABBY BELONGS TO HER DAUGHTER AND SUNNY HAS BEEN WITH HER FOR 11 YEARS. SHE HAS BEEN MY SOUL HORSE SENSE I GOT HER. Reporter: SHE WAS CARING FOR THEM WHEN A STRONG SMELL OF SMOKE FILLED THE AIR. IT WAS THE BEGINNING OF WHAT IS NOW THE COLD SPRINGS WILDFIRE. HER DAUGHTER, ALREADY SAFELY HEADED OUT OF THE AREA, TURNED HER ATTENTION TO THE HORSES. WE REALIZED THE PIN IN THE TRAILER WAS GONE. Reporter: LEAVING THEM BEHIND NEVER CROSSED HER MIND. SOMETIMES THE ONLY WAY THROUGH WAS TO JUST GO THROUGH IT. THERE WAS NO OTHER OPTION. Reporter: SHE HOPPED ON SUNNY AND HAD ABBY FOLLOW BEHIND.

THE RIDE WAS LESS THAN A MILE BUT IT’S A MOMENT THAT WILL STAY WITH HER MUCH LONGER. HARRINGTON AND BOTH HORSES ESCAPED UNHARMED. YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE — YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE STILL SEVERAL ROAD CLOSURES IN THE AREA. SHE WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET BACK IN THE AREA AND SAW HER
