As firefighters work exhausting hours to save their communities and extinguish the flames ravaging California, some have gone the extra mile to take care of their own.

Marin and Santa Rosa firefighters have created an online fundraiser to benefit colleagues who lost everything to the fires while risking their own lives.

The fundraiser, posted on, has raised over $8,000 for firefighters and their families.

All of the money raised will be distributed amongst the Santa Rosa Firefighters, Marin Professional Firefighters, Cal Fire Firefighters, Oakland Firefighters, San Francisco Firefighters, Petaluma Firefighters, and other local agencies.

"Most of these brave heroes are still on the firelines, and have not been able to even assess the damage or comfort their families," the organizers posted on the page.
