MT Red Cross Volunteer Dies in Car Crash


Paradise (MT) – Fire crews made steady progress in buttoning up lines on the West Mullan fire on Sunday.

When the West Mullan wildfire was just coming to life and bearing down on Superior, Kathy Duffner was there to help those in need.

A longtime Montana Red Cross volunteer, Duffner was at the Superior shelter helping to set up for families whose homes and lives were threatened by the wildfire.

Duffner was no stranger to disaster who, by professional training, worked as a nurse in Great Falls and Plains. In 2009, she joined the Montana Red Cross as a member of the Sanders County Disaster Action Team.

During floods in southeastern Montana in 2011, Duffner and her husband, John, spent 17 straight days delivering care to flood victims, including distributing more than 500 cleanup kits to people across the state.
