Can You Help A China Woman Who Lost Everything In Fire
Recently, a woman from China, Maine lost everything she owned in a house fire.
According to the KJ, an electrical problem is being blamed for the fire that destroyed a home on McCaslin Road on Friday.
According to fire officials, the home, a double wide, had been providing power to a nearby camper. However, officials were not 100% sure that was the cause of the fire.
The owner of the home, Terry Curtis, was not at home when the fire broke out. Her brother had been in the camper and stepped outside to see the house on fire.
While Curtis lost nearly everything in the fire, firefighters were able to save her dog, her husband's ashes, and the flag that had been presented to her at his funeral.
A GoFundMe has been setup to help Curtis rebuild her life. The goal is $10,000. As of Sunday morning, about $2,300 had been raised.
The GoFundMe, which was started by one of Terry Curtis' grandchildren, says in part:
