Responding to inquires from the public about what they could do to help with the Little Horsethief Canyon fire, Incident Commander Chris Ourada suggested during last night’s public meeting that the local fire department could benefit from some financial help right now to replace the wildland fire engine they lost at the beginning of the fire. He points out that most of the fire department is made up of volunteers and the work they do is on their own time and all their equipment is paid for by local taxes and donations. Consequently, the charitable donations they receive help those tax dollars go farther.  As far as other things like supplies or meals, Ourada says federal guidelines prohibit items from being brought in from the outside, although he smiles and admits, “we’re not going to turn away cookies and stuff because they are such a minor thing – and granted, the firefighters like that!”
