Lucky puppy rescued by emergency service workers inspecting home destroyed by wildfires in California

THIS lucky pooch was rescued by emergency service workers inspecting a home after it was destroyed in wildfires in California.

The puppy had some minor burns and couldn't wait to gulp down some water from the Animal Control crew.

The police department at Butte County decided to name the puppy Trooper after its miraculous survival.

It was taken to the Valley Oaks Vet Centre in Chico, California to have a once over.

The town where the adorable mutt was found – Berry Creek – has been virtually wiped out by terrifying blazes sweeping California state.

Four people have now been arrested on the West Coast for deliberately starting blazes as wildfires rage.

Trooper Ryan Burke, Washington State Patrol District 1 Public Information Officer for Pierce and Thurston counties said that two men have been arrested for arson.

He tweeted that a 36-year-old Puyallup resident was caught on State Route 167 at Meridian for setting a fire on Wednesday and is now in jail.

On Thursday another pedestrian was spotted lighting a match in the grass at State Route 512 and State Route 7.

The incident was observed by a citizen who called 911 and after a short chase on foot the person is in custody.

The FBI has released a statement addressing social media conspiracies that “extremists” were starting the fires after being inundated with claims.

“With our state and local partners, the FBI has investigated several such reports and found them to be untrue," the agency said in a statement.

"Conspiracy theories and misinformation take valuable resources away local fire and police agencies working around the clock to bring these fires under control.”
