Area residents have overwhelmed the Casper Fire Department with donations of water, Gatorade and snacks for crews battling the “Sheep Herder Hill” fire.

Officials with Natrona County Emergency Management say Casper Fire Station #3 has been inundated with donated items. While they are thankful for the massive response, they’re asking everyone to postpone donated items at this time. They recommend that anyone interested in contributing to the firefighting efforts can make monetary donations to the Red Cross or Salvation Army
