As a fast-growing wildfire scorched a corner of Simi Valley, California, flames came within a few feet of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and an unlikely hero may have saved the day.
The structure was threatened but undamaged Wednesday morning by the so-called Easy Fire. Goats that grazed on vegetation near the property are partially to thank for why the building remains standing.
In other words, goats are the G.O.A.T.
Library spokeswoman Melissa Giller said the Ventura County Fire Department brings hundreds of goats every May to eat the brush around the perimeter of the library to create a fire break.
