Searsmont family loses home to fire

  

People in the Searsmont area are rallying to help a family that lost their home to fire.

It was early Thursday morning when True Bragg awoke to the smell of smoke.

He quickly realized the house was on fire and helped his family escape.

There was too much fire to escape down the stairs so he, his wife and baby had to jump from a second story window.

You can see how bad it was by this photo captured by James Greeley.

The Red Cross has been helping the family with their immediate needs and a website has been set up to collect donations.

By this morning, close to 15 thousand dollars had already been raised.
