destroyed by fire

Early Sunday morning, my son Jacob lost his entire home to a fire, including his two beloved dogs, Bo & Bane. His home & everything inside is completely gone, but nothing compares to the loss of his pets. Jacob is a firefighter at Station 19 & it was actually his station that arrived on the scene. As a first responder, he devotes his time to helping those in need on a daily basis. He doesn't deserve to have everything he's worked so hard for destroyed. He's the type of man who would go hungry to ensure Bo & Bane had food. He'd happily give you the shirt off of his back & not think twice about it. Although there's nothing that could ever replace his dogs, Jacob needs help paying the final bills & with buying necessities (clothes, food, toiletries, pots & pans, etc.) His family is doing what they can to help, but any additional donations or shares are greatly appreciated.
