Girls carrying flags on a horse thank first responders

Raw video shows girls riding on a horse with American flags to thank first responders.

Three girls in California decided to thank firefighters in a unique way —by proudly displaying the American flag during the horseback riding on Thursday.

The girls were outside a command center in Anderson, where the fire brigade and emergency services were in preparation for the next day. The area is approximately 14 miles south of Redding, where the Carr wildfire has destroyed 1,060 homes. It is the largest of 18 fires burning in California.

Accompanied by U.s. flags, and a big “thank you” sign, and the fire could be seen smiling at the girls and taking photos of them as they rode in the past.

Tens of thousands of people remain under evacuation orders because of the fire, which has killed six people, including two firefighters, and leveled almost 500 buildings, according to officials.

It is the sixth most devastating forest fire in California state history.
