A historic mining town that has been scarred by a wildfire is holding a festival Saturday to raise money for road repairs.
The Gladiator Fire charred more than 16,000 acres near Crown King last summer, forcing evacuations. A series of monsoon storms followed, wiping away up to a foot of dirt from the road through town.
Taryn Denyce of the Crown King Chamber of Commerce estimates that it will cost around $10,000 to rebuild it.
Denyce says the Saturday event will feature bands, food, a kids play area and a beer garden.
She says other events are planned throughout the year.
