Our hearts go out to our friends and neighbors that were affected by the wildfire. We will post information here as it becomes available. Early estimates say approximately 2538 acres burned. 225 homes were lost, and 241 homes were saved. 143 unoccupied structures were lost, and 144 were saved.

The Panhandle Regional Planning Commission is working on obtaining financial aid for wildfire recovery by updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan. They are going to need as many people as possible from the area to complete the online survey. Please fill out this brief survey and share with as many Panhandle residents as you can.
