The fire started in the corner of the garage and as Richard Gardinier tried extinguishing the fire with a garden hose, his wife Pam frantically called 911. By the Time the volunteer fire department arrived, they were overwhelmed. At last, the Little Falls fire department, which was only 10 minutes away, was finally dispatched. But by then the fire was completely out of control. While the garage burned to the ground flames lept to the barn destroying it completely except for some crumbled metal roofing and iron. In addition, the house structure was badly damaged and a complete loss.
The unfortunate thing is they, they have no insurance.
So that is what has happened.
Now...This is what is needed.
You can never expect to rebuild a 200-year-old barn with big huge beams that can't even be found today. What was lost cannot be replaced. However, this is still a working farm with humble farmers growing crops.
1) All the tools that were lost need to be replaced. Which falls in the $20,000 range.
2) The rebuilding of a barn to store farming equipment.
