BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Office has released the log of 9-1-1 calls that came through the day of the Camp Fire.
Sheriff Kory Honea said his office got the first call about the Camp Fire at 6:48 a.m. on Nov. 8.
There were only two dispatchers working at that time, he said.
Several calls were from people looking for friends and family. Honea said that his team did the best that they could in a chaotic situation.
"I'm proud of the job they did," Honea said. "I know there are people who said they weren't able to get through to 9-1-1. I had people who said 9-1-1 dispatchers were abrupt, but given the situation, they had to quick as possible and sometimes that means taking control of the conversation, getting the information you need and moving onto the next call."
