Help Victims of the Mountain View Fire | Reportedly over 100 houses, barns, and other structures lost

Help is available to victims of the Mountain View Fire

Sadly, Walker lost over one hundred buildings to the Mountain View Fire yesterday, a lot of them are houses.  Some are barns, which kept all the owner’s equipment for ranching, building, and so on. For many, their entire livelihood has been lost.

If you and your family are victims of the fire and need a place to stay several local motels in the Bridgeport area are donating rooms. Please do not call the motels directly. Please call 760-932-7021. Multiple motels in town are offering rooms for shelter.

A donation drop-off for the fire victims has been put together in Bridgeport at the Memorial Hall from 9-5:00 today, Wednesday, November 18th.

Donations will be available to victims of the fire tomorrow in Coleville at the Meadowcliff Lodge at 110437 US Hwy, between Noon to 5pm on Friday, and on Saturday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

For information, please call 530-495-2255.

    Are donations still being accepted at the Mammoth Civic Center, and if so, will it continue through at least Thanksgiving week?

      They want people to go through the Mammoth Lakes Chamber of Commerce.

      Bridgeport is a GREAT little town,with lots of helpful people.
      20 years ago,when I was relocating from Oregon to the Sierra,I was stranded outside of Bridgeport,out of money,out of gas,freezing cold in the back of my truck in an abandoned campground,with no end in sight.
      When Bridgeport townspeople found out about my predicament,they found me and helped out with food and gas to get me along my way….forever grateful for that.

    Southern Mono County donations (of clothing, boots, blankets, cold weather gear, ETC) can be dropped off at 1290 Tavern RD (the new Civic Center), under the Adult Probation sign on the southside of the building.
