Utah dealer restores RVs for displaced fire victims

AMERICAN FORK, Utah — In November, the Camp Fire destroyed nearly 14,000 residences, leaving tens of thousands of people homeless. Barry Rellaford knew countless families who lost everything in the state’s deadliest fire. He wanted to help them by donating RV trailers for the families to live in temporarily, KSL-TV reported.

Rellaford contacted Mark Black, a friend who owns Stewart’s RV in American Fork. When the two got in touch, the ball started rolling.

The group donated two trailers to families in Paradise three weeks ago with plans of driving down many more. They also stocked the RVs with donations like quilts for the families. They have a trip planned to drop off two more trailers by the end of the week.
