ABILENE, Texas - More badly needed help is coming to volunteer fire departments stretched thin by the big Camp Barkeley Fire.
The Community Foundation of Abilene plans to donate at least $60,000 for fire relief. The foundation is partnering with First Financial Bank and several other individuals in the effort.
The money will be split between the 11-volunteer fire departments who have been fighting the blaze that has burned since Sunday April 27. So far, the fire has scorched more than 1,000 acres.
