WATCH: Horse Runs Into Wildfire To Save Other Horses

As smoke and flames were taking over the landscape in SoCal, one horse is being hailed as a hero when he/she raced back into danger to save its friends. 

While Good Samaritans were trying to round up horses as the fast-moving Easy Fire in Simi Valley exploded, one horse had another idea. It turned tail and ran back into the dangerous situation to save its fellow horses.

As you can see in the dramatic video below from CBS Evening News, the horse was being led to safety when it turned around to make sure two other confused horses found their way out of the danger zone.
