The buildings that burned weren't SHEDS!!!! These were indeed someone's HOMES!!! Get it right, people; just because they weren't your "typical" home that most people have up there, doesn't make it any less of a HOME to those poor families who lost EVERYTHING! I will be helping to try and get donations set up for this family who lost both of their homes - they need all the community support they can get!

Hi diaj98520,

Thanks for your comment. The fire crews' public information officer did let us know this afternoon that they had gotten new information that the structures were being used as residences and I made sure to note that in the updated story. If you have information about an account being set up for these families or anything like that be sure to let us know and we'll be happy to help spread the word.

Thanks, Jade McDowell
