EAST TEXAS (KTRE) - Area volunteer fire departments are putting out a call for help of their own after spending days of fighting several wildfires in East Texas.
"We need monetary contributions for gasoline. Apple Springs and other volunteer departments have used up the majority of their fuel budgets to travel to and from fighting these fires," according to a spokesperson for the Apple Springs Fire Department. "The volunteers need to replace fuel and other supplies. They are running out."
