“We have been supporting the response to the Camp Fire since last Saturday,” Nevada County Sheriff’s Search & Rescue is reporting on its Facebook page. “Everyday we have sent search teams to help with the searching for the missing, looking through all the debris for those that might not have escaped the fire.
“We will be sending teams all the way through next week including searchers and our search management team, which is going back on Sunday to help plan the search for victims.
“Our thoughs and prayers go to all those that have been affected and to the fire fighters and first responders working to bring closure to this event.
“From the human interest side, the team found a chicken coop unschathed from the fire that destroyed all that was around it and gave them water. Another team rescued a cat from the debris.”
(“The Camp Fire that erupted a week ago in Butte County had two separate ignition points, Cal Fire said Thursday night, and the resulting conflagration has now killed at least 63 people and left 631 still missing,” as the Sacramento Bee is reporting. “More than 52,000 people have been evacuated and 11,862 structures destroyed, 9,700 of them homes.”)
