SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Now that the rainy season is here, the aftermath of the Carr Fire is being felt in some areas of Shasta County.

Crews are working to repair the roof of an office building damaged by water in downtown Redding. 

The owner says soot from the carr fire clogged up the drain leading to a build-up of water once the rain hit. 

"So when we first came in, we noticed there was up to an inch of water on the second story office floors," said Kasey Dollar, owner of the business. "So you can only imagine that all went down after that, so light fixtures were hanging, light fixtures full of water. Water was coming through every possible hole you could imagine." 

The owner says he knows of at least two other building downtown with damage like this.

Recovery experts say now is a good time to check drains and gutters before more rain comes.
