Incredible photos show how one man's house was saved in California fires

One homeowner ignored evacuation orders. He hosed down his home while houses on their side were igniting and exploding:

"I was just drowning this place."

Adrian Beltre as Big Tex would be a shut up and take my money proposition every year when it comes to the State Fair of Texas

Way to go Adrian and you look good as a cowboy from Texas!

I miss watching my Rangers, but they've got work to do before next season. In the meantime, we can watch football

Paola Salazar if you see him get an autograph for Dante Martinez lol

A very good looking cowboy and a great Ranger, the best player⚾️

Yes...he's at the fair, not in the ALCS. Congrats Texas

I bought Nestle, Mars and Wrigley products already! 🎃

Well at least it good stuff😍

Chris Bland West

Good to know, it seems this lists all of the candy brands I am even familiar with, are there others?

Megan Parker

It appears that even within a brand some of their products aren’t listed. HERSHEY- Hershey bar not listed. Does this mean it doesn’t use sustainable psalm oil?

Kristian Roy just think you’d be at every home game! Kahlee could hang with Captain all the time! Lol.

Is there a seniors squad? I have a dear friend that is ready, willing and able to run those flags! :)

Can we get some color in there...

Non blonde, non airhead need not apply.

Nice work schedule! You will always get October off 😂😂😂

Well, the Rangers certainly have a “type” that must apply. All else can sell Dr Pepper or popcorn.🙄

Wow, could this pic be any whiter or blonder? Just a tad tone-deaf, doncha think?

Obviously a tanning membership doesn’t come with the gig

From the waist down they look like they're on a day trip from the old folks home

Learn from Napoli ......just close your eyes and shoot it.

I don't think they will let me join in. :))

Jennifer Morris you gonna apply or what!? 😂 Elijah would be so proud of Mimi! Lol

Victoria here is that part time you were talking about

Where's the Asian ladies???

these comments Meredith McManus id buy season tickets to see you shoot your pistol or whatever they do..

Why does it have to be females only? Isn’t that very sexist of the Texas Rangers

Who came up with the name six shooters for these girls. Definitely a man.

The rangers don't even have that many whites n blondes on their roster.

Must be white and blonde

Let's give support not sarcasm

Isn’t the same without you Jessica Zura.

But I already graduated from preschool. 😭

What a joke again!

Are those 38's or 44's?

Dallas Zoo

It's Friday the 13th. And it's October. 🎃 This has only happened 3 times in the past 20 years. If you suffer from paraskevidekatriaphobia (fear of Friday the 13th – we swear we didn't make this up), we can help.

Here are 13 glorious reasons why you should visit the Dallas Zoo on #FridayThe13th.

1. We have animals. Animals make people happy.
2. Watching meerkats play in fall leaves is as basic as it gets – and you love it.
3. Hugging goats is a thing, and you should try it in Children's Zoo. (It’s better than goat yoga.)
4. Dippin' Dots ice cream cures everything. (Except diabetes.)
5. Our baby boom this year is kind of a big deal.
6. Hippos Boipelo and Adhama are #RelationshipGoals and cuddle better than anyone.
7. Observing our creepy-crawlies in the Herpetarium and Bug U! can be therapeutic – if you're into that kind of thing.
8. We have beer on draft. You're welcome.
9. Watching baby elephant Ajabu run around with his trunk up and ears out is life changing.
10. After people feed our giraffes, we usually hear, "This is the best day of my life." FACT.
11. You need to let your hair down and take a wild spin on our carousel. (Pics or it didn’t happen.)
12. Cheetah Winspear has a best friend that’s a dog named Amani. For real.
13. Get off Facebook and come hang #IRL (in real life). But don't forget to tag us!

With love,
Your Dallas Zoo

Love my #DallasZoo

My 4 year old loves #DallasZoo He even knows that Teasley Ln. is the road out of Denton toward the highway. Last week we went to the zoo for Columbus day and all the way down he talked about the song played at the zoo entrance. He skipped toward the gates singing "welcome to the Dallas Zoo". Then promptly burst into tears when he realized the music had been switched out and there was no welcome song. Poor guy. We miss the welcome song!

Carmen Chapa Gutierrez SOON!!!

Not like a zoo zoo!!!! Animal heaven and humans get to watch!!! Love Dallas Zoo!

We need to get rid of this second rate manager whose bad decisions cost us some games Jon Daniels should go too

They must be desperate for inductees in their hall of fame!

Cleveland and Boston wish the Rangers had made the playoffs.

Fire him and Daniels!

Congrats coach.
