Firefighters rescue Great Horned Owl from California wildfire

Firefighters in Southern California rescued a Great Horned Owl from a wooded area threatened by a wildfire this weekend, authorities said.

The owl was grabbed by Ventura County firefighters on Sunday near where the Maria Fire is cutting a path through woods in the area, the fire department said in a statement.

The crew named the bird Ram after the Los Angeles Rams football team and took it to a nearby wildlife rehab center, where it’s on the mend, according to Ventura County Fire Department.

The rescuers were patrolling near the town of Somis looking for “hazard” trees, which have been burned and could fall and injure wildlife and residents, the Ventura County Star reported.

The owl is expected to make a full recovery and be put back into its habitat after resting at the rehab center.

The Maria fire burned about 10,000 acres of land since it broke out on Oct. 31. Firefighters in the area have fire about 90 percent contained, according to Cal Fire.
