A family from Redding, California was forced to evacuate their home because of the Carr Fire and was forced to leave their pet fish, Grant, behind in his bowl. According to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the father warned his daughter that Grant probably wouldn’t make it after not being fed for a while.
But a tweet from Cal Fire shares the good news that the family returned home to find Grant was alive and well, thanks to being fed by caring folks from CAL FIRE Engine 1489 and the Corning Police Department. “Fed your fish a few sprinkles,” a handwritten note from the crews reads. “Sorry if we weren’t supposed to.”
The kind firefighters and officers who looked after Grant even wrote the date and time the fish was fed both times. The note also reads, “Good Luck,” and it seems as if Grant and his owners have had their share of good fortune during the wildfire.
