Friends Rally Around Middletown Family That Lost Their Home

Subscribe

Middletown – Just after 11:00 yesterday, Friday March 9, firefighters from The Volunteer Hose Company of Middletown, along with crews from Odessa, Port Penn, Townsend and Clayton responded to the 500 block of Ramunno Drive for reports of a house fire.

Upon arrival, crews found the home with heavy fire showing and began to attack the blaze.  No one was home at the time of the fire but the family lost everything, according to a post on social media.

Friends quickly rallied around the family and started a Gofundme page to help them with basic personal needs, clothes, food, gas, and bills. The page has already raised over $9,300 dollars.

The post indicates that the homeowners and their two children have a temporary place to stay while they are figuring out next steps, but they will have to start from scratch.

Officials have not released information regarding the cause of the blaze or any estimated damage totals at this time.
