HORNBROOK, Calif. — An Ashland woman will stop at nothing to help the people of the Hornbrook community, still reeling in the aftermath of the Klamathon Fire.
Some residents of the Hornbrook area were barely able to get their families, pets and livestock away before flames from the Klamathon raged through the community on July 5th and the days immediately after.
However, homes, structures and supplies — including barns and hay that is absolutely vital to livestock — were not so lucky. Many of them went up in flames when the fire passed through.
Jana Toney of Ashland wants to do something for the Hornbrook residents whose livelihoods were wrecked by fire, so she has organized a "hay drive" planned for October 6.
Toney brought fresh water to the town when she noticed the need.
"When I brought the water down I started talking to a bunch of different folks in the community that had been impacted and started finding out what their problems were and what their needs were," Toney said.
Toney is asking others to bring hay and fence posts to their headquarters at the R Ranch headquarters at 225 Ditch Creek Road in Hornbrook on October 6 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
All hay donations are tax deductible.
