Sierra Vista couple to help Doce Fire victims - Tucson News Now

Sierra Vista couple to help Doce Fire victims

The Doce Fire has burned almost 6,400 acres in the Prescott area, mostly brush, no structures as of yet.

Kristen Knauss grew up in Prescott, but calls Sierra Vista home now. She knows the area where the fire has burned.

"It's really hard and the words can't even describe how you feel when you watch things that you have done and places you have gone as a kid go up in smoke and there's no containment and there's nothing you can do," said Knauss.

She has plans to do something to help firefighters, friends and family in the area. Kristen and her boyfriend Jason Wallace plan to head up to Prescott on Saturday morning.

They are bringing donations that include, water, socks and dog food. The goal is to hand out the donations and see what the other needs are. They are also working on a horse barn at the their home, which should be done in the next few days.

While in Prescott, they plan to help families with horses and livestock. The plan is to load the animals on a trailer and bring them back to Sierra Vista. Hundreds of miles away from the wildfire.

"There's only so much room for all the horses and other livestock, that was our main concern, getting the animals out of there, you love your animals, you can't take them with you sometime, so we want to help those people that can't do that," said Knauss.
