I think we will give directly to the local fire department, but I am sure any help is welcomed.
My most favorite place in the world is suffering a horrific runaway wildfire which started on Saturday and no containment of the blaze in sight yet.
Mike Perry, who lives in Alpine, wrote up this regarding the now national disaster: It's Like a Large Black Ocean.
No human losses yet, but 60,000 acres and counting, 80 + structures and homes, and uncounted livestock and wildlife. And just as the pronghorns were beginnging to come back in better herd numbers.
Very very heartbreaking.
