For the second time in a week another family is homeless after fire struck their home. The most recent was Sunday afternoon around 5pm in Gladstone of Southeast Nelson County. Julie and William Gunter along with their family lost everything.
“It’s just so devastating. The lost everything but a few things her grandfather had given Julie. They lost pets, lots of them. Including three adult dogs, puppies and more,” Katie Gunter Franklin, a cousin, told us.
Katie says a man passing by noticed the fire and kicked out a window freeing some of the animals. No one was home at the time.

Family needs are very preliminary but we wanted to get help started to them as quickly as possible.
We are working to find out where people can drop off items the family needs.
