The family rushed outside to put the fire out.“We have a evacuation plan and have drills for things like this. Louanne Vargas told us.“ My job is too close all inside doors and getting the animals out, grabbing our to go bag.” Still recovering from recent hand surgery, She only was able to use one hand. Ms Vargas learned first hand how having a plan set up in advance saves lives. She was in one of the World Trade Towers on 9/11.

“We have dogs, reptiles and many exotic animals that we use to perform educational and animal therapy for the disabled.” The rest of the Vargas Family, Becca 20, Louis 22, and Mauricio 24 had their own duties during the emergencys.“We came within inches of losing our house and barn,” Mauricio Vargas told us.“My brother Louis
Was like a beast putting out the flames The Family knows when to pull out when their lives are in danger.

The house suffered some damaged, but family, horses and pets are in good shape.
“We haven’t been told yet who was using fireworks during a burn ban, but it doesn’t matter, we did what we have been taught and we are ok” states Becca.
