Over the weekend, Vacaville PD had to rush to help the Solano SPCA evacuate 60 animals due to the Nelson fire. The fire was getting very close and these animals needed to be moved out QUICK! This is a bodycam video on one of the officers and you can see how fast they were working to save these little guys! So scary. All of the animals were placed safely in foster homes and the fire is now 100% contained after reaching 2,162 acres. The Solano SPCA explained there was smoke damage to the building and that it was without power and water for a period. On August 12, the SPCA was able to request the return of the cats and dogs from foster homes.
Do you know anyone who was affected by the fire?
As the Nelson Fire raced towards the south end of town, it looked like the Solano SPCA would be the first to be hit by the flames. Our officers worked with Humane Animal Services, SPCA staff and volunteers to evacuate all they could in a race against the clock.
