Recent wildfires in California took their toll on residential and recreational areas over many weeks. One particular fire — which ultimately burned 1,806 acres in Ventura County — also damaged a site of significance for conservatives and Republicans.

“On October 30, the Easy Fire scorched the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum’s 400-acre property in Simi Valley, California, causing nearly $400,000 in damage and coming only 30-feet from President Reagan’s Air Force One pavilion,” the organization reported Monday.

Surrounded by flames and smoke driven by 60 mph winds, the entire site was evacuated. The fire burned trees, banners and landscaped areas, ultimately destroying the library’s major internet and cable connections.

Any donations to the organization will be matched dollar for dollar up to $15,000, “thanks to a generous donor,” the organization said.

“Your gift will not only help us repair the extensive wildfire damage we experienced last month, but it will also provide world-class education programs, scholarships and more to help keep President Reagan’s legacy alive for generations to come,” they wrote.
