BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Butte County and Cal Fire rescue teams have responded to more rescue calls in the past two weeks than they did in all of 2018. 

On an average year, Cal Fire said they respond to 25 rescue calls.

"We're on pace this year to be above that," said Sean Norman, Cal Fire's Battallion Chief.

Butte County and Cal Fire rescue teams responded to 12 rescues and transported 17 people on boats in the last two weeks.

Cal Fire wants to remind drivers to obey the "Road Closed" signs and find alternate routes instead of driving through flooded roads.
