Donations pour in for local family

There has been swift and overwhelming public support for the Brown family who lost their home to fire Thursday.

Early Thursday morning a fire started in the home of the Brown family on the 254 road near Mile 64 of the Alaska Highway. Since they live out of the fire protection area, their home was left to burn leaving 8 people homeless, including four children.

Thursday afternoon friends started to collect donations for the family who did not have insurance.

According to those collecting donations, the support has been overwhelming with countless people and businesses stepping up to show their support.

As of Saturday, you can now make a cash donation to the family online at a Facebook page listed below.
