CHICO, Calif. — Taking a no-doubt well-earned break from patrolling the burned remnants of Paradise, firefighters from the Rogue Valley Strike Team had a chance on Thursday to visit pets that were rescued from the Camp Fire.

"Though we can’t share a lot about the fire activity in California, we were approved to share this heartwarming story that the ST7-Rogue Valley crews experienced today," Jackson County Fire District 3 (FD3) posted on Facebook.

A veterinary clinic in the Chico area has been caring for pets recovered from the Camp Fire — many of them with burns or other injuries.

"Visiting the local veterinary clinic was a wonderful opportunity for firefighters to see the impact of their work while also having some downtime with a number of happy four-legged friends getting back on their feet," FD3 said.

The firefighters thanked the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal for allowing them to share the story.

"It is always uplifting to hear a story like this in the midst of tragedy. #petsarepartofthefamily #weloveourpets #wildfire," FD3 said.

NewsWatch 12's own Rachel Tiede is traveling down to the Camp Fire on Friday and will be bringing you more stories of Oregon's firefighters, relief efforts, and stories from survivors throughout the weekend.
