Grant the fish survives Carr Fire with some help from firefighters and police


By Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN

A Redding, California, family who fled the sprawling Carr Fire returned home to find something fishy had happened while they were away.

They were doubtless elated.

According to a tweet from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the family fled the 190,000-acre blaze burning just west of Redding, in Northern California.

"Both were in for quite a shock when they returned home to a well-fed fish!" read the Cal Fire tweet.

An accompanying photo showed Grant swimming among the tall grass, marbles and porcelain jug that decorate his abode.

A handwritten note from a member of the department's Engine 1489 crew said, "Fed your fish a few sprinkles. Sorry if we weren't supposed to." A notation beneath it from the Corning Police Department said Grant had been fed again August 1 at 10:33 a.m.

"Good luck," the second note said, as if Grant and his owner hadn't already enjoyed a great deal of fortune.

The Carr Fire, which began almost three weeks ago, has destroyed almost 1,100 residences. Grant's wasn't one of them. The fire, which is roughly the size of Charlotte, North Carolina, was 59% contained as of Sunday morning.

In a Facebook post, Cal Fire used the opportunity as a teaching moment, telling residents, "Remember to have a plan for all your pets."
