LOGAN COUNTY, Colo. — Community members in Logan County will hold a fire relief and fire fighter appreciation benefit on Saturday in response to last month’s wildfire in Sterling, which burned 32,563 acres.
According to Logan County Emergency Management, about 200 head of cattle died in the fire. Four houses and several outbuildings were also damaged.
Saturday’s benefit is billed as an evening of fun, aimed at celebrating the firefighters that protected the community, and bringing financial relief to those affected by the fire.
The event will be held at the Haxtun Fire Hall from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. with live music, as well as silent and live auctions. Proceeds will be split between a relief fund and local volunteer fire departments that were on the scene.
To offer financial support, visit the Haxtun Community Federal Credit Union. All of the funds donated through the credit union account will go to the families affected by the fire.
