The Salvation Army may start asking for bottled water or Gatorade if the situation in De Beque changes, as many of those supplies have already been sent to aid in the Waldo Canyon fire, Wilson said.

Right now, the best way to help is to donate monetarily or volunteer to help a local agency, said Mike Page of the Grand Junction Fire Department. Residents should not go to the scene of any disaster.
