GARDNERVILLE, Nev. (AP) - Ranchers in Nevada’s Carson Valley have donated 26 tons of hay to help animals affected by a deadly northern California wildfire.

The Gardnerville Record-Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1NKAmKf ) ranchers in the area began collecting hay this week to take to Jackson, California, where the nearby Butte Fire has burned more than 500 homes. Two deaths have been reported in the blaze.

Betty Stodieck and her family say their hay donation was given to Laughton Ranch in Jackson, where evacuated animals are being housed.

They also collected items for people who were forced out of their homes.
