Red Cross: Taylor Fire Relief Efforts Costing Over $250,000 So Far
August 18, 2012
North Central Washington residents have responded generously in the face of tragedy this week, in response to the 70 plus homes burnt in the wake of the Taylor Creek Fire outside of Cle Elum. Apple Valley Red Cross’ Mariah Thornack says the response effort has cost upwards of $250,000 dollars since the blaze exploded Sunday evening. Thornock said that figure should spiral upwards as crews are able to get back into burned areas and get a better idea of the damage.
If you want to help those displaced by the fire, Red Cross officials are asking for monetary donations. You can make a donation to the Red Cross at Cashmere Valley Bank-Taylor Bridge Fire account. Also, Global Car Care in Wenatchee says for every $100 dollar donation they receive, they will give the donor a $40 dollar gift certificate for their good deed.
