California's wildfires continued to spread under the influence of strong winds on Tuesday, so much so that animals were left behind to fend for themselves.
At one point, a horse was even seen galloping across a highway in an attempt to save itself from the flames and smoke that continued to spread as a result of gusty Santa Ana winds.
