While the number of animals who have been affected by these fires is not known, a feel good story was shared on Facebook about a search and rescue team of Butte County Sheriff’s Office that discovered a puppy while they were investigating properties at Berry Creek.

The post read: "Yesterday, as BCSO deputies and members of BCSO Search and Rescue were searching through properties impacted by the fire, they made an unexpected and welcomed discovery on a large property in Berry Creek, this adorable puppy."
