My mother and stepfather (Lynne Bahre and Gary Dionne) have been left in shock as a devastating fire has deemed their home a total loss on Friday, March 23, 2018 at approximately 3:00pm. All of their possessions have been annihilated and they are left with nothing but the clothes on their back and hopefully their dog, my brother (though I don’t see the resemblance), Sheldon. Sheldon is currently at an emergency veterinary hospital enclosed in an oxygen chamber in questionable condition fighting for his life. At this moment, Sheldon is their main concern (see link at the top of the page). Possessions can be replaced in time, but there’s only one Sheldon. There are also 3 cats unaccounted for at this time. Neighbors are searching for them in hopes that they escaped during the chaos. This fund is being started to cover Sheldon’s extensive vet bills and hopefully some possessions that will be needed in the immediate future such as clothes, toothbrushes, socks, undergarments, toiletries, and maybe a well deserved beer (Just kidding…. Kind of).
They had a family member visiting from out of town and left the house to do some sight seeing. 10 to 12 minutes after leaving the house, they received a phone call from a neighbor saying their home and another home were up in flames. At this time the state fire marshal is still investigating what caused the fire and at which home it started. When firefighters arrived to the scene there was a ball of fire between the two homes due to the wind.
Any donation would both be greatly appreciated and needed. Thank you for all of your help!
