Wildfire Victims In Washington Seek Help From Their Tribal Community

 


The Cayuse Mountain Fire has been the second largest in Washington state. The blaze consumed 14 homes and displaced up to 50 people on the Spokane Indian Reservation. But the community is trying to get back to normal life.

Word of the fire and its damage spread almost as fast as the flames. The day after it started, the community had already set up a donation center for victims in a warehouse next door to the high school

Tammy Byers came from Muckleshoot alongside nieces, nephews and her son.
