STIRLING CITY, Calif. - Firefighters rescued four people and two kittens from a fire in an old Stirling City building on Oct. 8.

Butte County Cal Fire says firefighters got everyone out without injury around 8:30 a.m., only about a half-hour after the fire was called in.

They say the 10,000 square foot building was built more than 85 years ago and it served as the town's general store and post office.

Eventually, the back half of the building had been turned into a residence.

Thankfully, the wind is cooperating much better today in northern California. Our weather is still quite hot for this time of year and very dry. There is plenty of haze and smoke from the Fawn Fire overhead, and it isn't leaving yet.
