While working on an update on the devastating wildfire in Northern California that is currently threatening people and animals in Redding and surrounding areas, WAN came across a special story of survival.

As per posts on numerous California Highway Patrol Facebook pages, on Saturday, July 28th, San Francisco Sergeant Fawson responded to a call about a young deer who was alone, stranded, and in need of being rescued from the 80,000 acre fire.

SF Area CHP units have been deployed to the #CARRfires in Redding, CA. This baby deer was pulled from fire danger and was turned over to a deer rescue organization, shared the Facebook post. “God speed CAL FIRE and all other fire and first responder agencies providing mutual aid. You are truly the Bravest.”

Redding CHP explained on its Facebook page that the fawn was so close to the fire that they could not wait for her mother to return.

While the deer rescue organization has not been identified yet, it did send the department some pictures of the rescued fawn now named Carra, and assurred them that she is “doing well and drank a lot of water and took quickly to the bottle.”

Tragically, the Carr fire claimed numerous lives so far including two young children and their great-grandmother. It is unfathomable how many animals have also already fallen victim to the flames.

WAN is praying for everyone who has been affected by the wildfires and hopes that no more lives are lost as a result of the tragedy.

WAN will continue to provide updates as they come.
