Meals donated to first responders battling Canal Road Fire
As firefighters work to put out the flames from the Canal Road fire, locals are working to make sure first responders are taken care of.
This morning, more than 70 meals from Waffle House, numerous bottles of water, and other snacks were dropped off to firefighters in Harrison County who are working on the massive woods fire.
Firefighters have been battling this fire since Sunday. The wind has kept firefighters on their toes as it spreads the fire throughout the county.
As the firefighters work tirelessly to put out the flames, members of the community wanted to give them fuel to keep going and keep us safe. Jordan Hartshorn with Pridestaff Gulfport said, “Some of these guys have been on shift, they were supposed to go home and they stayed for work. So, we want to make sure they are feed, well hydrated because they are protecting the homes and structures and preventing it from spreading worse. You have to think with COVID-19 out there, now this is happening, if it keeps growing it can displace more people.”
Pridestaff in Gulfport, along with the Supporting the Coastal Front Line group, plan to keep feeding the firefighters as they continue to battle this massive fire in Harrison County.
