    Hope Among the Ashes in Northern California

    -

    The Camp Fire in Butte County in Northern California is being logged as the deadliest single fire on record since the 1933 Griffith Park fire in Los Angeles. (AP Nov. 12, 2018). The town of Paradise has been lost and the images we are seeing of the loss and destruction are completely heartbreaking.

    Yet, there is hope among the ashes. The following pictures taken from the Foster City Fire Depts. Face Book page showing firefighters rescuing a cat along with this short story, also taken from FCFD’s Face Book page.

    “While out on patrol today on the #CampFire, FCFD E28 crew could hear a cat meowing on a property they were checking. They were able to locate an injured cat in the bushes on the property. Firefighter Downing was able to coax the cat out and as you can see, an instant friendship was formed. The cat had burns to its whiskers and bottom of its paws. E28 crew were able to get some much needed food and water for the feline….who was named “Foster” by the way. E28 crew cared for Foster until they were able to contact local animal services who are now treating and caring for Foster. Scenarios like this will often boost the spirits of Firefighters who have, for days, witnessed nothing but tragedy and destruction. We are proud of the compassion and dedication our Firefighters show to not only their own community, but to other communities in need. We look forward to their safe return after the mission has been completed.” (Source FCFD Face Book page).
