ABOUT LIGHT MY FIRE, INC.

Why we do what we do

 

Just over 30 years ago, members of our Treasure Valley community witnessed a fire being fought in a local home that resulted in a devastating loss for the family. Nearly everything they owned was lost. Imagine the helplessness that everyone on the fire scene felt that day. Now image witnessing an unbelievable kindness from the firefighters after the fire was out. One by one, they witnessed the firefighters take cash out of their wallets and give it to the family. When asked ‘why’, they learned that there was no mechanism or company that could give immediate help to families displaced by this type of disaster and the firefighters simply couldn’t bear mopping up the fire scene and leaving a family with the black reality before them. Any amount of money could possibly bring hope, compassion, medicine, toiletries, a hotel, or a safe moment to grieve, so the firefighters made it a practice to carry some cash with them just in case. Those that witnessed this selfless act decided on that day they could make a difference; thus, Light My Fire Inc. was born.
