The Niel's lost their home to fires

Friends, Family and community. We are launching this gofund me campaign to help a family thats been in need since the fires. 

Steve Niel, Tony's brother and I are creating this campaign so that we can get some help for fireman Tony Niel and his family. Tony has been fighting fires in our community for a long time with combined 6 years in Calistoga and 14 years in Santa Rosa.  Sadly his home on Newport place was burned to rubble. The Niels have been like family not only to me but many others. 

Tony is among an estimated 40 active duty firefighters that lost their homes on the first night of the fires. He is the father of two young boys named Jordan 12 and Mason 11 and a loving husband to Carroll Niel. They have deep roots in our county and it's going to take help from all of us to get them back on their feet. 

During the the Tubbs fire Tony rushed to help those in need and rescued folks to safety not thinking of himself but thinking of those lives around him are what make fire fighters and responders who they are. 

Tony, Caroll and the boys are currently living in temporary housing and their spirits are high. Please consider donating any amount to support their incredible family during this time. 

Read this story below and find out more about the Niel's and their ordeal with the Tubbs fire.
