Checks can be made to American Red Cross,(designate to local disaster) North Texas Area United Way Fire Relief or Interfaith Ministries Fire Relief.

    A popular Nocona restaurant is serving up food once again after shutting down from fire damage. Bear's Den Diner caught fire two months ago after a trailer only feet away caught fire and heavy winds spread it to the restaurant. Bear Weller, the owner, said the only reason his kitchen is open is that of his customers.
