RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - The flow of donations to those affected by the fire that devastated downtown Dubois has slowed to a trickle as rebuilding efforts get underway in the northwestern Wyoming mountain town.

Ellen Jungck, president of Needs of Dubois, tells The Riverton Ranger ( ) that “donations have dwindled down to virtually nothing at this point,” and the funding will probably only run through May. The group has collected about $88,000 in fire relief since the accidental blaze Dec. 30.

St. Thomas Episcopal Church also started a fundraiser.

Parish administrator Mary Ellen Honsaker says the church raised almost $78,000 in relief from people across the country and Fremont County, but that money also is running out. That figure includes a $25,000 donation from NOD.

More than a dozen businesses were destroyed or displaced by the fire. No one was injured.
