Eryn Maggard cradles a two-week old goat who lost it's mother in the 117 Fire on Wednesday, April 19, 2018. She carried the kid named Washington around all day, because every time she put him down, the goat would bleat for his mother. Maggard and her husband operate Sugar Snap Ranch in the Hanover area, a ranch that takes in rescued farm animals. On Tuesday, when the fire raged towards them, the Maggards had 3-4 minutes to get as many animals out as possible. They saved many, but a number of their pot-bellied pigs and goats perished in some of the burned structures. The young goat is named Washington, but Maggard's children have nicknamed it Toasty.
