CHICO, Calif. - The Chico Fire Department rescued two people and a dog from the swift waters of Lindo Channel near Esplanade Thursday morning.

Crews say the man and woman went under the bridge in order to get out of the rain.

By the time they woke up at around 4 a.m., the water had risen around them to create a small island under the bridge.

Chico Fire used a ladder to bring the couple and dog back up on the bridge.

No one was injured.

Chico Fire says snowmelt and rain caused the waters to become swifter and higher than normal.
