Fire victim thanks neighbors, but needs help

On Wednesday night’s newscast, we reported on a fire in Benque Viejo. Although neighbors assisted victims such as Hector Martinez who lived in the building, his father-in-law who owned the structure, confirmed to News Five earlier today that his loss was about one hundred and fifty thousand dollars in assets. Rudolfo Hernandez stopped by our studio this morning to thank those who assisted during his personal disaster.
