On her bicycle, a woman flees a wildfire with her 70-pound dog on her back.

Natasha Wallace had no intention of leaving her pet Pit Bull behind. At 2 a.m., Natasha was traveling home from college when she noticed the deadly flames of a wildfire moving towards her home in Santa Rosa, California.

She dashed home to save Bentley, her 4-year-old Pit Bull, but they got stopped in traffic on their way out. One of the cars in front of her even collided and toppled! She rapidly realized that the fire was growing too quickly for her to reach to safety in time, so she devised a new plan: she would ride her bike and put Bentley in a duffel bag. The only flaw in such strategy was Bentley  is 70 pounds!

Natasha, however, persuaded Bentley to hop inside the bag, pull him onto her back, and begin cycling. Fortunately, she only had to bike a few miles before another evacuee saw her and offered her a ride.

Natasha’s house was entirely destroyed by fire, but she is thankful to be alive and have Bentley by her side. “I will never part ways with my dog. ever,” Wallace remarked to KTLX. “It’s either that or die for me.” “Oh my God, literally,” says the narrator.
