PALOMINO VALLEY, Nev. (KOLO) - The Bureau of Land Management wants the public to know that the horses and burros at the Palomino Valley National Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Center are safe now and have been safe in recent fires.

“As of today, July 16, the animals remain safe and calm, and the facility plans to be open to the public during normal business hours on Monday,” the BLM said in a Facebook post.

There are firebreaks of 30 feet to 100 feet around the facility to protect against fires along with asphalt roads around it and a water truck remains on site. A backup generator will power the automatic water troughs if it loses electricity.
