Hundreds of goats clear dry brush in Lemon Grove

Posted: Updated:

LEMON GROVE (CBS 8) - People in Lemon Grove are improving their fire safety, with the help of some unusual landscapers.

City officials and Heartland Fire are using a herd of goats to clear heavy brush around homes and businesses.

The animals are being allowed to eat their way through the area to create adequate defensible space.

Goats have been hard at work since Friday, and will continue over the next few weeks.

Organizers say 200 goats can eat about one acre of dry brush per day.
