OKANOGAN, COUNTY, Wash.-- Sheriff Frank T. Rogers thanked all who donated to victims of the Carlton Fire Complex during a press conference Wednesday and said the community is no longer in need of any specific items.
We currently have enough donations and are not asking for anything more at this time, said Rogers. We are extremely grateful to all of you.
If citizens still feel the need to donate, there are funds set up in which donation money will be automatically allocated to fire victims. Rogers said all of the previous donations were sent to a storage facility and will be sent to the old grocery store in Pateros.
The Carlton Complex Fire covers 251,025 acres and is currently 67 percent contained, according to the National Wildfire Coordinating Group. NWCG estimates that the fire will be fully contained on Saturday.
