SYLMAR, Calif. - A fire captain's dog went missing amid evacuations as the Creek Fire in the Sunland-Tujunga and Sylmar areas scorched more than 11,000 acres Wednesday.
Taco, a male french bulldog, was last seen at the 7-11 on Sunburst Drive in the Lake View Terrace area, according to firefighter Johnny Arreola.
Little Tujunga Hot Shots fire captain Joel Gonzalez and his girlfriend, Cristina Loranzo, are frantic to get Taco back.
Taco got separated from his owners after they were forced to evacuate as flames from the Creek Fire grew closer to where they were.
Loranzo said he is known as the "station mascot."
He is mostly black with white markings on his forehead and chest and may be hiding, scared or injured.
Please call 818-302-9944 if you spot Taco.
