BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A chainsaw artist is commemorating the town of Paradise with art from a log salvaged from the Camp Fire.

The Forest Foundation commissioned chainsaw artist Matt Holmes to carve a bobcat from a log salvaged from the Camp Fire. 

The carving will be auctioned off at the California State Fair to raise money for the Paradise Unified School District. 

Holmes created a bobcat out of the log because that animal is the mascot for Paradise High School.

Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather tonight! If you do head out and plan to stay out late, probably bring an extra later to throw on for when the sun sets as temperatures will be cooling off into the low to mid 60s for the valley by midnight and low to mid 40s by tomorrow morning.
