Spaghetti feed Wednesday to aid July fire victims


WALLA WALLA -- Friends and family of two fire victims will host a spaghetti dinner Wednesday to help raise money for medical bills.

The dinner to benefit Zachary Collins, 23, and Ashley Lechner, 21, will be from 6-8 p.m. at room 185 on the main campus at Walla Walla Community College.

Collins suffered burns, cuts and smoke inhalation in the July 3 fire which occurred in the apartment he was sharing with Lechner at 216 N. Park St.

Lechner was also injured in the blaze.

Although both have recovered from their injuries, they still have substantial medical and other expenses, said Lynn Davis, Collins' mother.

Collins was working in construction at the time of the fire and had no medical insurance.

A suggested donation of $10 will be requested.
