Katelyn and Luis house fire.

On August 12th my sister and her family, including 5 children awoke in the middle of the night to find their downstairs bathroom on fire.  The fire quickly spread into the vents and began filling the house with smoke.  The fire emergency team quickly responded and was able to contain and extinguish the fire.  Everyone, including pets made it out unharmed.  Unfortunately the damage was extensive, resulting in an unlivable conditions until at least November.  The house is a rental property, and unfortunately the landlord is offering no help whatsoever, so the family was forced to leave with little choice of where to stay.  They are now forced to  stay in a friends small basement.  School begins for the children in one week and they are now 30 minutes from their school.  The family had less then a week to remove their items from their home and pack it away in storage, which resulted in Katelyn and Luis missing a week of work adding more financial weight to their situation.  The goal of this fundraiser is to help the family find a suitable home as soon as possible, and to aleive as much of the financial burden the have already and will soon face; Including storage fees, loss of work, back to school supplies and possible legal aid.  Any donations are extremely appreciate. Please help by either donating or just simply sharing this page, in hopes that the family can come to some peace of mind during this unexpected hardship.  Thank you all for your generosity
