r On Friday, September 18, Culver’s Spanish Fork posted a simple message on social media for the Pole Creek and Bald Mountain fire crews. It read, “Culver’s of Spanish Fork appreciates and supports our firefighters’ hard work and bravery. We want to offer free lunch today to our brave firefighters. Thank you for all you do.”

Though initially there was no response, Culver’s owner Monty Hedin said the message was shared around on social media and on Saturday a representative of the fire crews called. Arrangements were made for the crew to come in and on Saturday night Culver’s fed an entire crew of 125 firefighters in 2 shifts.

“They were grateful and it was our pleasure to do it,” Hedin said.

The Pole Creek and Bald Mountain fires have combined to eat up over 90,000 acres so far in the wilderness bordering South Utah County. It has forced the evacuation of more than 2,000 homes, affecting about 6,000 people.

Hedin said he’s grateful for those working hard to save homes and cabins. “These guys are up there working long hard hours. It’s hot. It’s smoky. And some of these guy’s are volunteers,” Hedin said. “We just wanted to show support in the community.”
