YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) -- Dairy farmers in the Yakima Valley have raised $61,000 to help families left homeless by last month's White Swan fire.



The Yakima Herald-Republic says a check will be presented Monday to Yakama Nation tribal leaders.



Some 120 people were left homeless by the fire, which started in a chimney and spread to 18 dwellings. It was fueled by high winds and dry conditions.



In addition, Darigold Inc. is contributing 400 pounds of cheese, 390 pounds of butter and 1,000 bottles of milk to the relief effort.
