A family of eight lost their home in a weekend fire near Scott.
The home belonging to the Rich Strunkenburg family in Paulding County caught on fire Sunday afternoon around 5.
Now, the Crescent News reports that a special fund has been set up to help the family at the Van Wert Federal Savings Bank.
Fortunately, nobody was hurt in that fire, and although the exact cause has yet to be officially determined, the state fire marshal had a team on the scene to try to figure it out.
Just about everything is needed right now by the family, who lost pretty much everything in the blaze that hit right after Christmas.
The American Red Cross in Paulding was able to provide food and clothing to the family, as well as shelter at a Van Wert hotel for three days.
