Sharp Hill home destroyed in fire

Last night (Oct 17) a  fire and high winds caused an immediate evacuation in SharpHill.  My parents live in the area, so we tried to get a close as we could,  we were able to get a clear view of their home and could see that the  fire was blowing directly towards their house. While we watched and prayed, we got a call that our friends house, not far from my parents home was consumed by the fire. A few minutes later the winds shifted, rerouting the fire away from SharpHill.  Everyone got out of the area without injuries but our friends ( The Smiths) with three kids (16,14,12) lost their home, business, vehicles and beloved dogs., leaving them with only the clothes on their backs, it's tragic and devastating.  Today they are without the simplest of things, like underwear, toothbrushes, clothes and shoes. It's hard to know what we can do in a time of crisis,  but we hope to at least help them with the essentials, like food, clothing, shoes

and maybe more. Please join us in supporting this Amazing family.


The Airdrie community is so giving! Wow, it is beautiful to see. There has been so much support and generosity for the Smith family.
