Grant to help fire recovery

KARLSTAD, Minn. -- The Northwest Minnesota Foundation recently gave $10,000 to Northwest Community Action to aid Karlstad, Minn., after a fire this month.

The city of Karlstad was damaged by a severe wildfire in early October. Several buildings suffered damage and a mandatory evacuation for part of the community was ordered.

The NWCA will provide vouchers for food, clothing, transportation and short-term housing rentals. The grant is being added to an additional $10,000 the NWCA is providing for emergency aid, bringing the total to $20,000.
