We will update you when we get more information.


UPDATE: A donation page has been created to help the family; it states:

Bob and Sandy Samsel's house was destroyed in a fire last night.  Thankfully they have home insurance, but they have lost everything. from glasses, to clothes, to phones and computers, they will need to replace everything.  We are creating a fundraiser to help them begin to get their lives back in order.  If you could donate a few dollars this holiday season, it would be appreciate.  All proceeds will go directly to Bob and Sandy Samsel and their dog Bingo!  Thank you for taking the time to care.
