Wirsing Family House Fire

Please keep my sister, Josie, in your thoughts. She and her family lost their home in a house fire this afternoon. Everyone made it out safely, besides the family dog :(. Their roommate tried saving the family dog and suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to Rockford. They have lost everything. Red cross has them in a hotel the next couple of days. They have 2 children in the home, a daughter age 6 and their newborn, 2 months old.
