California Highway Patrol made a fan out of a little fawn in Northern California.

Officers from San Francisco were stationed in Redding to help firefighters battle the massive Carr fire when they found a baby deer struggling to escape burning bushes. They pulled the animal out before it was injured.

A photo take with the baby deer seems to show it was thankful for its rescuers and may have made a new friend.

The fawn was turned over to a local rescue organization. Firefighters and officers from across the state are out helping with the Carr fire and other fires burning in California.
