RENO, Nev. (AP) - Religious leaders in the Reno area are gathering together to provide support for those impacted by the fire that destroyed 30 homes over the weekend and give thanks to the firefighters and others who prevented the disaster from becoming even worse.
Leaders of the Nevada Clergy Association say the Caughlin fire will be the focus of their 26th annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Eve Service. This year's service is scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday at St. John's Presbyterian Church on West Plumb Lane.
The theme for the service is "Giving Thanks in Times of Change."
The Rev. Neal Anderson says they want to acknowledge the trauma the fire caused to the community as well as provide encouragement for healing, renewal and rebuilding.
