A Tulsa business is helping provide some measure of comfort for Creek County wildfire victims.

The owners of Tulsa's Mattress Firm said they saw the devastation and knew they had to do something.

They donated nearly 250 mattress sets to families in need.

Melvin and Rita Cramer got theirs Thursday, and said they are grateful for the giving spirit.

"I mean, there's some giving, giving folks here, and we wanted to be a part of it," said Michael Yelich, the owner of Mattress Firm.

He said the donations have topped more than $150,000.
