Kelso fire destroys gifts and injures 2 firefighters

Posted: Updated:
KELSO, WA (KPTV) -

A fire just before Christmas destroyed dozens of gifts, but thanks to the generosity of others, dozens of men, women and children in Kelso had a great holiday.

A fire ripped through Mountain Ministry, a religious-based treatment center, along Rose Valley Road on Sunday Night.

Part of the home and hundreds of presents inside were damaged or destroyed, including quilts made by a church group.

Within a 24-hour period the community donated more gifts than the center had before.

Two firefighters were taken to a hospital for minor injuries while fighting the fire.

Investigators are still working to determine the cause of the fire.
