House Fire Help

Just hours after losing a beloved family member to a short term battle of a terminal illness, Jake Meurette and his family lost everything. Around midnight Sunday, August 19th, 2018 Jake's girlfriend Taylor Zillman woke up to the sound of an explosion. Unaware at first what was going on, she woke up Jake and realized the room and home were full of smoke and in flames. They were able to evacuate quickly and ran for help. The kids were not in the home at the time of the incident and they were able to save the family dog Molly as well! At this time we are just looking to get through this week. I would just like for Jake and his family to have a bit of piece of mind and to have a little less worry. This day will go down in history for our family. We will never forget it.  Let's see if we can ease their troubles just a bit. I've seen what this community can do! Let's pull together. Any donations are helpful. Thank you for your time and your help.
