Koi fish that survived fire being transferred

Posted: Updated:

SAN MARCOS (CBS 8) - Beautiful koi fish that survived the devastating Cocos Fire have been moved to a safe place. 

It's a miracle the koi pond in Harmony Grove wasn't destroyed. Firefighters helped keep the fish alive.

The fish were in a pond in resident Chris Meredith's yard when the fire fire swept through the neighborhood. Meredith's house burned down, but almost all of his three dozen fish survived, most likely by swimming to the bottom of the pond.

On Saturday, members of the San Diego Koi Club worked with fire crews and the Humane Society to save the fish.

Koi club members returned Monday to take the fish to a sanctuary in Lakeside. Meredith says he plans to bring the fish back after he rebuilds.
