A reporter and her cameraman put down the microphone and camera to help save some horses.

Kristine Lazar and her cameraman Marvin Stone were at Gibson Ranch in Sunland, California reporting on the recent wildfire when they realized their efforts would be better served helping save some horses than reporting.

The scene was nothing but tense, as flames were already on the ranch property and thick smoke and fierce winds surrounded the area. According to Lazar, it was hard for her to talk and keep her eyes open.

Watch this brave reporter and cameraman rise to action in the video below. Lazar asks if they can help at the 2:00 mark.

Another video posted by CBS 2 Los Angeles shows an update after Lazar and Stone stepped in to help. In the video, you can see some of the devastation caused by the wildfire.

Gibson Ranch is a family-owned hoarse boarding and equine event facility. As far as the barn goes, it has been reported as a "total loss," but thankfully, all of the horses made it out alive.
