The fire is the largest in state history and has since burned more than 205,000 acres.

“We just want to come together as a community to really help out our locals. We have a lot of locals who are volunteer firefighters, who are firefighters alone, who have also been evacuated from their families, their homes,” said Ashley Sell, the Co-owner, Vern’s Place. “So we just wanted to come together as a community to help all of them in a time of need.”
