My family (Dad,Mom, bro) wanted to extend their thanks to all the people of the community and friends that have helped them with this tragedy. They are very grateful for all the donations and generosity, friends, family, and the community have given.

Happy to hear the family made it out OK, that is good news. My prayers go out to the family. Is anyone starting a family fund or donation for clothes, etc. to help out the family? If anyone is please post the details.

Family made it out OK. The family cat was lost in the fire. A tragic event for this family as the home is a complete loss.
