The Bridger Foothills Fire that started on September 4th destroyed 28 homes in Bridger Canyon. Currently, the firefighters pretty much have it under control (83% contained), but many families are still dealing with the aftermath.

Almost immediately after the fire broke out the community began coming together to raise money and supplies for those affected by the fire.

Here are several ways to help support those affected by the Bridger Foothills Fire:

Hay Days

People can drop off hay donations, fencing supplies, or money donations to help ranchers after the Bridger Canyon Fire. Donations can be dropped off from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 26th, and Sunday, Sept. 27th at the gravel lot north just past Murdoch's on North 7th.

Three Forks Saddlery Fire Relief Section

To help offset losses from fire, the Three Forks Saddlery has been accepting donations of gently used tack and saddles in good condition. They have set up a fire relief area in the store for people to come in and take whatever they need to replace their losses, no charge.

We Care Chiropractic

We Care Chiropractic and Dr. Spence Jahner truly live by their name. They have pledged to donate the $65 for an adjustment and for new patient evaluations to the Bridger Foothills Fire Fund. Call to make an appointment at (406) 393-8672.

Open Horse Show and Derby

Join Holloway's Pretty Good Horse Barn for an Open Show, on Saturday, Sept. 26th, and Dressage Derby on Sunday, Sept. 27th. Proceeds will go to help equestrians affected by the fire. Classes will include showmanship, halter, western pleasure, ranch riding, and more! Register by Friday, Sept. 25th here.
