Four massage therapists teamed up to provide some free aid to firefighters with sore muscles Monday.

Tasha Stover, a massage therapist from Happy Valley, came up with the idea of offering free 10-minute massages to firefighters and other personnel camped at the Shasta District Fair grounds in Anderson.

“I knew they were working so hard, and that this might be a way to help relieve some of the stress, fatigue and muscle soreness,” she said.
