    my mother’s ashes were left behind in the Camp FIre and I heard on the news that a dog had found another person’s mother’s ashes. Do you know who I can contact to see if I can get a dog to search for my mother’s ashes in Paradise? Thank you. Beverly Stambaugh

      Hi Beverly,

      I’m so sorry for your loss. I would suggest reaching out to your local police department, and they should be able to connect you to the right people.
