Video Shows Bull Charging Firefighters Battling Huge 'Lake Fire'

August 17, 2020

As if firefighters don't have enough to contend with battling the massive Lake Fire near Lake Hughes, now they're chased by a charging bull?

Ventura County Fire Department posted a video Friday of this terrifying moment when fearless first responders meet the bull head-on.

“Crews were clearing the road so the engines could get to a clearing when they were chased out,” the agency wrote. “Luckily no one was injured and #Ferdinand went about his day.”

Later on Friday, an LA County Firefighters page on Instagram posted a photo of a bull resembling the one in the video.

“This sweet boy is safe and resting comfortably. It’s been a long few days on the #lakefire,” the post reads.

The Lake Fire has now burned more than 18,000 acres and has remained at 12% contained.

More than 1,700 firefighters are battling the blaze, which has destroyed 21 structures, according to CalFire.
