The Burns Lake Home Hardware is looking to the community to help collect goods and money for the family that lost their home in a fire this morning west of the village.
“They have lost everything…they just got out with the PJs on their back. So we’re taking donations wither it be clothes food, money..” says Kelsey Hansen with Home Hardware.
The family’s trailer was completely destroyed in the fire according the the Burns Lake Fire Department that battled the blaze for 4 hours.
Hansen says the mother of the family of three just moved to the northwest from Alberta and is an employee at the store.
Home Hardware will be collecting donations at the Burns Lake location for as long as the family needs.
