Fund set up to help family
A donation fund has been set up for a local family whose home was damaged by a fire Friday night.
The home, at 37140 Even Lane off Kalifornsky Beach Road, is owned by Christopher Hodo and Crystal Jones. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
Five family members were in the house when the fire broke out, according to Gary Hale, fire marshal with Central Emergency Services.
When the first CES engine got to the scene, the firefighters reported the garage was fully engulfed by the fire with flames coming through the roof.
The flames spread from the garage to the upper truss of the home and caused damage over the kitchen, dining room and living room. Major smoke and heat damage were sustained throughout the rest of the house, according to CES.
Anyone wishing to help the family financially can make a donation in their name at either Wells Fargo bank or Alaska USA Federal Credit Union in Kenai.
