Community Rallies for Fire Victims
Wednesday, January 20, 2016 7:28 PM by
A gofundme page has been set up to help 13 people left homeless from Monday's fire.
The Grey County community is again rallying to support the victims of a devastating fire in the village of Ravenna in the Town of the Blue Mountains.
The children vary in ages. There are 18 month old twins, a boy and a girl.
The other boys are aged 5, 9, 10, and 16 years old while the girls are aged 7, 12 and 14 years old.
The goal is $10,000 and, so far, more than $12,000 has been raised.

UPDATE: Members of the Church tell Bayshore Broadcasting News they have been overwhelmed with donations for the Wilson family.
The schools where the children -- St. Vincent Euphrasia, Georgian Bay Secondary and Beaver Valley Community School -- are also collecting items for the families.
Town of the Blue Mountains Fire Chief, Rob Collins, says firefighters were alerted to the blaze at about 5:30 AM on Monday -- and damage is pegged at more than $300,000.
A family member contacted Bayshore Broadcasting News to say a 10 year old boy in the home heard the alarm and woke up everyone else, to get them out safely.
