Firefighters Feed Family’s Pet Fish After Carr Fire Forces Evacuation
Father Feared He’d Have To Tell Daughter Grant, The Beta Fish, Didn’t Survive
A certain pet fish and one very grateful family are hailing firefighters in Northern California.
Cal Fire shared on Twitter that one family was coming home to a happy surprise. They were among the thousands of people who had to evacuate to escape the raging Carr Fire in Redding, California.
One father prepared his daughter that their beta fish, Grant, probably didn’t survive.
Hold onto those tears.
The first happy news was that the family’s home survived.
They also found a note explaining that Grant had actually been fed twice by firefighters and police.
Engine 1489 left behind a note saying, “Fed your fish a few sprinkles. Sorry if we weren’t supposed to.”
After a father informed his daughter that her fish was likely dead, both were in for quite a shock when they returned home to a well-fed fish! Thanks CAL FIRE Engine 1489 & Corning Police Dept. for ensuring Grant was fed while his owners were evacuated due to the #CarrFire pic.twitter.com/Ole8DoJnpf— CAL FIRE (@CAL_FIRE) August 11, 2018
