Firefighter In Need

CAPTAIN MICHAEL MUSGROVE HELPED PROTECT OAKMONT , NOW IT’S TIME FOR US TO GIVE BACK

While Captain Michael Musgrove and his crew were working in Oakmont to hold back the fast-approaching wildfire, Musgrove’s house on St. Helena Road in rural Santa Rosa went up in flames and could not be saved, almost to the day one year ago that he unexpectedly lost his 20-year-old daughter.  He had owned the house for only two days and had not yet arranged for fire insurance.   

A Gofundme page has been set up for Captain Musgrove aimed at raising $750,000.  Please click here to contribute if you can.
