"The night of the fire, I was at my home in Santa Rosa and headed to Equi-ed on Porter Creek Road to evacuate horses.   I drove back to Santa Rosa and dropped the horses at a friends place on the west side of town.  I then drove to the east side of town and let horses out of the barn as the flames burned down Redwood Highway.  Upon releasing the horses, I literally ran to my truck and drove to my home in Coffy Park.  At 2 AM, I heard on the radio that the fire had jumped the 101 and was coming my way.  So, I grabbed my boots, camping gear and my dog,  jumped into my car and fled to my friend's house in Petaluma.  The next morning, I heard that my neighborhood was gone."  -Managing Director of Sunrise Horse Rescue Lindsay Merget stops in Calistoga to pick up diesel fuel." -Managing Director of Sunrise Horse Rescue, Lindsay Merget stops in Calistoga to pick up diesel fuel.
