STOWE, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont firefighter is making his way to the Florida Keys with a truck full of supplies for victims of Hurricane Irma.

John Steele, a firefighter in Stowe, says he is independently driving down to the Keys with supplies donated from about 20 businesses in the area. WCAX-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2h6Ylan ) he is hauling about $70,000 worth of supplies - $20,000 of which comes from him and his wife.

Steele says he’s doing this because of how people have helped him and his family when he was in need.
