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.

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.
