“Upon arrival, they saw a wooden building completely engulfed in flames. What we know so far is that a sixteen-year-old minor, who is the daughter of the complainant, was along with her boyfriend inside the home when they observed one of the rooms within the home engulfed in flames. As a result they were able to evacuate the building where they called for the police and fire department.”


The affected family needs assistance to rebuild; they can be reached at 665-1867.
