Palmer Fire Consumes Everything

However, pictures posted on Instagram last month showed Bear Brown facing the fiery flames with a shovel in his hand.
Alaskan Bush People: Animal Rescue Mission
As the fire raged on, Billy and Ami had to stay away from it due to their lung and respiratory issues. That meant their children would have to salvage and save whatever they could. One of the most important possessions they tried to save were animals and livestock. Snowbird Brown aka “Bird” was emotional and worried about the animals that were still on the property.
The Brown siblings were given permission to go back up to the house and save what they could. But, they only had 30 minutes to get it done. They managed to get a few horses and two of Bird’s cats. The following day, they got instructions from the police and were able to save some more animals, including North the horse.
Brown Family’s Home Destroyed
The Alaskan Bush People stars took a trip up the mountain once a portion of the fires were contained. However, when they arrive at their ranch, they don’t see much of anything left. The Palmer Fire had consumed everything in its path, including the home they worked so hard to build.
Despite enduring another tragedy, the family remains full of hope. They have been through horrible situations before and survived, so they are sure they can get through this one, as well.
