California's wildfires continued to spread under the influence of strong winds on Tuesday, so much so that animals were left behind to fend for themselves.
At one point, a horse was even seen galloping across a highway in an attempt to save itself from the flames and smoke that continued to spread as a result of gusty Santa Ana winds.

FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn spoke at a rally to protect net neutrality on Dec. 12, saying the forthcoming vote needed to represent the will of the American people. The event was held in response to the FCC’s controversial plan to repeal Obama-era protections that prevent internet providers from slowing down or blocking websites and apps. Clyburn later voted "no" during the vote. The rules were repealed along party lines 3-2.
Rep. Dan Johnson, a Republican state legislator in Kentucky facing sexual assault allegations, has died in an apparent suicide. Johnson was accused of of assaulting a teenage girl in 2013. Police investigated but closed the case and did not file charges.
As the Federal Communications Commission planned to vote on whether or not to repeal Obama-era "net neutrality" regulations on Thursday, security came in and advised everyone to clear the room due to a concern. The vote resumed a short time later.
"Net neutrality" regulations, designed to prevent internet service providers like Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and Charter from favoring some sites and apps over others, are on the chopping block. On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission plans to vote on a proposal that would not only undo the Obama-era rules that have been in place since 2015, but will forbid states to put anything similar in place.
