REDDING, Calif. - There's a very happy ending to report in the story of a kitten burned in the Carr Fire in Redding.

Her image was widely shared on social media when she was found burned, coming out of the ashes. 

Now, she has a new home and a new name: Small Fry.

She was rescued by firefighters and nursed back to health by the Haven Humane society.

Two months and a couple of weeks later, she is now the newest family member of the Woodcox family in Chico. Katrina Woodcox is the Executive Director of the Butte Humane Society.

The "before" and "after" pictures show the huge difference that care and love have made in Small Fry's life. 

She lost her ear flaps, and the toes on her paws burned together, but her hair has grown back and the burns have healed. Today she is happy and healthy.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
