Animals should be OK - many of them evolved in habits subject to wildfire, like the African savannas.

I’m a member of the San Diego Zoo. IIRC the Paradise fire in 2003 threatened the Wild Animal Park. One of the CDF battalion chiefs fighting the fire in the vicinity asked the zoo staff what the fire fighters needed to do to protect the animals. The zoo staff basically told CDF that they would leave the gates open to the fireproof concrete shelters and pens that are scattered throughout the park. The animals had enough sense to go to these places to escape the fire.

And hopefully all of us ape-like animals will have the sense to evacuate when the order is given. We have fires all over the Southland and have Santa Ana winds forecast for the next two days combined with no humidity and a record dry rainy season.
