Red Cross volunteers are scattered across the state helping those affected by Washington's massive wildfires, bringing assistance to those in need during a difficult time.
One of those volunteers is Ken Hemmelamn from Spokane who, as wildfires rage across the state, is hitting the road again in a truck packed with water and ice. Ken, along with another local Red Cross volunteer, are heading west to help those affected by the Wenatchee Complex Fire.
Ken's been on nine disaster relief trips as a Red Cross volunteer; this will be his second one in Washington.
"It's rewarding for us personally but it's fun to interact with the people because they all have stories and sometimes they just need someone to talk to and we are there to do that," he said.
The local Red Cross volunteers plan to be on the road in support of the Wenatchee Complex Fire for six days.
