Posted: Updated:

The Black Hills community has shown their generosity in the aftermath of a tragic fire. Five children were killed in a Spearfish house fire last weekend. DETAILS

The Rapid City Fire Department has received "a huge amount of inquiry" from the area about donations to the affected families. Now the RCFD's main station will serve as an additional drop-off site. OTHER DROP-OFF SITES 

"Not only every parent's worst nightmare but every firefighter's worst nightmare, a call like that. And so I really don't have any great words of wisdom as far as what that is other than to take care of each other," said RCFD Interim Chief Rod Seals. "And here in western South Dakota, neighbors helping neighbors, we're used to that. And that's what we're asking for here."

Station 1 is located at 10 Main Street in Rapid City. Donations will be transported to Spearfish frequently. Further information can be found by calling the department at 605-394-4180.
