Donation buckets at state basketball will go toward Logan County fire relief

In an effort to help those affected by the recent fire in Logan County, the Class 1A and 2A state basketball sites will be taking donations that will go toward fire relief.

Donation buckets will be available at both the University of Northern Colorado (host of 1A), and the Budweiser Events Center (site of 2A).

"When possible, we try and help our communities, and this is a particularly devastating situation where a very large section of a county has been destroyed," said CHSAA assistant commissioner Bert Borgmann, who administers basketball.

The fire in Logan County, which is located in the northeastern part of the state, was first reported on Monday morning. It has burned 30,000 acres.
