Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The American Red Cross continues its relief efforts in the communities around Las Vegas and Pahrump affected by the Carpenter 1 Wildfire.
As the response continues, the Red Cross is in need of the community's help to continue assisting clients who've been displaced by the fire.
Fire Hurts - Red Cross Helps is the campaign dedicated to raising funds to support fire victims, whether it's one of the local home fires or the wildfire currently underway.
Before Carpenter 1, the Red Cross was on track to spend nearly $300,000 this year on local fire response. The wildfire will result in added spending.
