BEULAH, Colo. (CBS4)– People in Beulah have banded together after a fire destroyed homes and forced the entire town to evacuate last week.
The fire caused about $4.5 million in damage, including eight homes that were destroyed, in the town southwest of Pueblo. The fire was accidentally started by a CDOT worker’s construction equipment.
A 5th grade student was so sad to hear about the fire, she decided to help the victims.
“My grandma and I put together a bake sale to help the community up in Beulah where the fire hit and near the fire. We’ve raised over $100 today, not including the change,” said 5th grader Morgan Johnson.
Morgan also collected donations like clothes and bedding for the victims who lost everything. There’s another fundraiser on Saturday at South Park Elementary School in Pueblo.
