When you have hundreds of firefighters who need a
place to stay and food in their mouths, it's no easy

But it only helps improve the firefight.

A SMALL CITY IS CERTAINLY WHAT'S NEEDED WHEN ALL THESE
FIREFIGHTERS FINALLY GET A BREAK FROM BATTLING FLAMES
THE DAVENPORT MIDDLE SCHOOL HAS TO SERVE AS A HOME
AWAY FROM HOME FOR THE 250 FIREFIGHTERS WHO ARE EXPECTED
TO SPEND THE NIGHT.
THE HARD WORK UNDERWAY TO MAKE SURE THOSE FIREFIGHTERS
HAVE EVERYTHING THEY NEED.

Having coffee, having food, having a quiet place to
Those things are really important cause they're working
so hard out on the line.
THAT FOOD COMING FROM THE DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES.
WHO WILL BE WORKING HARD TO MAKE SURE EVERYONE GETS
A HOT MEAL.

A state kitchen is coming here and setting up and
they'll have breakfast ready for about 250 people
tomorrow morning.W12 23
AND WHEN YOU HAVE HUNDREDS OF MEN AND WOMEN PUTTING
THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR OUR SAFETY.
MAKING THEM FEEL AT HOME IS JUST A SMALL WAY TO SAY

Morale is huge.
When you're away from home and you're working long
hours and it's hot and you're dusty.

The fire is still zero percent contained tonight and
these firefighters will be back on the front lines
