WASHINGTON — Two horses are safe and back in their barns after they were found wandering outside a Prince George’s County fire station on Sunday morning.

Crew members saw the horses walking near Station 832 on Allentown Road, according to Prince George’s County Fire Department spokesman Mark Brady.

A crew member’s mother tended to them while waiting for Prince George’s County Animal Shelter officials to arrive.

Shelter officials were able to contact the owner, who led the horses back to their barn.

Brady added that Prince George’s County fire stations are considered “safe spaces” where anyone can seek help.
