California residents are still evacuating from several deadly wildfires, but there's concern some animals might get left behind.

Paradise, California, resident Jeff Hill returned to his evacuated neighborhood during the Camp Fire and found a horse in a backyard swimming pool.

He said in a Facebook post the horse was tangled in the pool cover after escaping the flames.

That pool cover prevented the horse from drowning.

Hill said he scrambled to unhook the cover and guided the horse up the shallow end steps.

Resources eventually came to escort the horse from the fire zone.
