Firebook Interviews

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Kansas Humanities Council connects communities with history, traditions, and ideas to strengthen civic life.
We thank the KHC for underwriting our efforts to record our history of the how the Starbuck Fire affected our lives, our community and our future.
Visit http://kansashumanities.org  for further information.  The  KHC is the only organization dedicated to creating, supporting, and promoting the humanities as a resource for all Kansans.

The sound recordings are videos and sound files library staff and volunteers recorded to remember the Starbuck fire that struck the Clark and Comanche County  area in early 2017.  This page is a work in progress and we are adding new videos and information periodically, so please check back often.

Millie Fudge, Clark County Emergency Preparedness, gave a talk on the Starbuck Fire on September 19, 2017 at the Ashland City Library.  The video above is a recording of this presentation.
