TRAIL, Ore. -- The Rogue Elk Ranch in Trail is housing animals for it's neighbors that had to evacuate from the Sugar Pine Fire. It says this is just what they do to support their community.
Sara Hammond had to evacuate her home once the fire jumped a creek, "Winds changed up dramatically and drove down through our property."
Thankfully her home was spared, but her Mother-in-Law's home was destroyed by the fire.
"There were some things in there that we didn't get out in time," says Hammond. She says no one lived in the home at the time of the fire.
Now, she's packing up what valuables she can, including her chickens and dogs.
The animals are staying with Roy Myers, Owner of Rogue Elk Ranch, "We're pretty safe here, down at the bottom."
Roy and his community have been through fires before, and the community comes together to help out when they can.
"That's why we live up here, cause that's how people are around here," says Hammond.
Myer's help doesn't stop there, he's taking his dozer up to assist fire crews.
"We cleared behind peoples houses, put fire trails up there," says Myer.
Right now his ranch is under a level one evacuation notice. He says he'll continue to help his neighbors as long as he can, "We all work together."
