As the largest fire in Washington state history continues to burn out of control, one man took matters into his own hands to save his pigs.
According to KREM2 News, the American Red Cross opened eight shelters across the state to house evacuees and some of their pets. While most brought their dogs and cats with them, one man brought his pigs.
"I got to keep these pigs because these are my future. That's food on the table," pig owner Eric Condit told reporters. "My horses, I turned the gates loose and let them go."
Condit brought three pigs with him, leaving behind four horses, a pony and several cats and dogs.
There’s no word on the status of Condit’s home. It is located in one of the many parts of Stevens County left to burn due to steep terrain that made it dangerous for fire crews.
