BERRY CREEK, Calif. — Rescuers found a soot-covered puppy amid the rubble from wildfires that are ravaging California.
The Butte County Sheriff’s Office found the puppy hiding Friday in what looked like part of an engine on a property in Berry Creek.
The puppy, who has been temporarily named Trooper, had minor burns and was taken to a veterinarian for treatment.
Investigators learned that the homeowner had several dogs and was not able to find them all before fleeing the fast-moving fire.
