Bruce & Coleen Kincaid Fire Fund

My name is Michael Silva. Nancy Poplin and I are raising money for our dear  friends Bruce & Coleen Kincaid of ELHID Labradors.  Bruce & Coleen and their animals have been displaced as a result of losing their home due to an electircal fire caused by a hallway lamp.  As they slept comfortably in their bed they were awoken on January 26th at 2:00AM to a house filled with smoke and flames.  As of now, they have nothing to go home to as their house burned to the ground.

Bruce and Coleen will tell you that they themselves are fortunate to have made it out of the fires safely even though they have lost everything: clothes, furniture, wedding, baby, grandbaby and family pictures, etc.  In addition, Coleen is a seamstress and everything she was working on perished; including her sewing machine and all material (threads, fabric, etc.).

Unfortunately, not all of their pets were as lucky.  The house burned so quickly they were unable to save 2 of their precious Shorty Bull Terriers, Bumble & Pigskin.  Their hearts are broken over this loss.

All they have now are the clothes on their backs and their vehicles. This fund is being set up to help them with their immediate needs and for what they will need in months to come as they rebuild their lives.

Thank you in advance for helping our friends Bruce & Coleen Kincaid!
