GUTHRIE, Oklahoma -

Families in Guthrie lost everything during the fire, including barns and ranches.

Organizations are now stepping up to help families with their livestock. Oklahoma Large Animal First Responders put word out that space was needed to house animals after the fire. The Lazy E Ranch in Guthrie opened its stalls immediately.

"Our first reaction was to open the doors on the Lazy E to anyone who needs to relocated stock here," says Lazy E General Manager Dan Wall.

The ranch has around 60 horses right now and has the room for many more. Wall says there is no time limit on how long the animals can stay free of charge to their owners.

Large Animal First Responders also got help for a horse named "Bella" that was burned during the fire and suffered trauma to her head. Veterinarians think she got spooked by the fire and hit her head quite hard trying to escape the flames.

"This family lost everything literally. This horse is all they have left," says Clayton McCook with Oklahoma Large Animals First Responders.

Bella is expected to make a full recovery after getting medical attention in Edmond.
