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.

The Broward Sheriff's office released bodycam video which shows a Lauderdale Lakes man fighting with a Broward Sheriff’s deputy before a second deputy fatally shoots him. The suspect, Jean Pedro Pierre, died at Broward Health Medical Center on Wednesday night.
Parabon Nanolabs, a Virginia-based company, uses genetic traits from DNA samples to predict the suspect's physical appearance, including ancestry, hair and eye color. The technology could help police solve cold cases.
A homeless dog, who resorted to eating rocks because he was so hungry, was rescued in Beverly Hills, California. Abandoned by his family, the dog – later nicknamed Stewie by rescuers – was left to fend for himself on the streets. Neighbors noticed the dog continued to return to the old owner’s house, in hopes they would come back for him. Following a tip, Hope For Paws rescuers Lisa Arturo and JoAnn Wiltz came and rescued the suffering dog from the streets. While Stewie was scared at first the pair were eventually able to coax him in. Vets found that the dog had rocks in his stomach, which, they assessed, he had likely eaten because he was so hungry.
