CURRENTS WEEK IN REVIEW: OCT. 12-16, 2015

PG&E EMPLOYEES MEET WOMAN WHOSE HORSES THEY CARED FOR DURING RECENT WILDFIRE

In an emotional meeting, Mary Quinn thanked two PG&E linemen who gave food and water to her horses and burros following the recent Valley Fire. Stanislaus "Stosh" Wiecek and Jeff Wolford met Quinn, who runs a nonprofit that rescues abused animals, on her burned-out property in Middletown. Quinn credits the men with saving the lives of her animals after she had to make the painstaking decision to leave them behind as the fire quickly approached her home. As this video shows, it was a meeting to remember.
