Local restaurant working to feed firefighters, evacuees of Yarnell Hill fire

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Happening now, as the Yarnell Hill Fire continues to burn out of control near Prescott, crews at Firehouse Subs on the northwest side are doing their part to help.

Firehouse Subs, on River and Orange Grove, is busy making food for the firefighters on the front lines of the Yarnell Hill Fire, and they have been hard at work since 5 a.m.

The crews are making hundreds of sandwiches to go to firefighters and those evacuated due to the fire.  The restaurant has promised to deliver 200 sandwiches a day.  These sandwiches will go to the Red Cross for first responders, evacuees and any others who need them.

As their name suggests, Fire House Subs is a big supporter of first responders and in particular, firefighters. 

In 2005 Firehouse Subs established a non-profit with the goal of providing funding, life saving equipment, disaster assistance and educational opportunities for first responders and public safety organizations. 

The Yarnell Hill Fire is obviously hitting home and they are doing whatever they can here to lend a helping hand.
