Donations Not Needed For NM Wildfire Crews

Jun 3, 2013

Donations of food and other material for firefighting crews in northern New Mexico aren't being sought.

Dan Ware of New Mexico State Forestry says there's been an outpouring of donations but that fire managers say the teams are fully supplied with meals, beverages and equipment as well as medical gear.

According to a statement issued by Ware, the American Red Cross' evacuation in the Pecos High School gym is fully stocked and unable to accept further donations.

And Ware says volunteer fire departments also no longer are in need of donations.
