The O'Brien family rebuilding fund

Wednesday, February 25th 2015 was a devastating day for the O'Brien family. While thankfully the family was NOT home and no one was injured, their home was destroyed by a fire thought to be caused by their refrigerator. The most recent article can be read here:

It will take months before the home is livable again and most of their things are ruined by smoke or water damage. This family has nothing but the clothes on their backs for the time being. 

Alison and Kieren O'Brien.

Alison O'Brien & daughter, Meagan O'Brien who was staying with her parents during the fire.

Angus, the family cat was home and sought refuge in the basement of the home where a firefighter was able to find and save him!
