Charles & Joy Steffen Fire Fund
of $5,000 goal
Raised by 11 people in 24 months
On Wednesday, January 4, 2017, approximately 1 pm, Charles was burning the end of a rope and set it aside, but did not realize it was still hot and smoldering. Within seconds it started a fire that consumed their garage. He tried to fight the fire with a bucket of water, but a neighbor saw the smoke and ran to their aid, and realized they could not win the fight. Both Charles and Joy were removed safely, but within 20 minutes 2/3rds of their home was consumed by fire. They stood outside hand-in-hand for 2 hours watching the fire fighters battle the flames.
