Bader/Backaus home fire

On September 28th there was a fire that started in the garage and spread to the house before it could be extinguished by the fire department. It took their vehicles and left the kitchen, dining, and living room to ash. There was smoke and water damage to the rest of the home, where this Wisconsin husband and wife raised their five children. They called this home for over 25 years.
We are so thankful everyone was okay. Everything else can be replaced. That is why we are creating this page, to help get them through this difficult time while they figure out where they are going to live and how they can begin to rebuild their home.
Please consider donating to this family. Thank you.
