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.
