Help Needed For Rochester Family Who ‘Lost Everything’ In House Fire
Donations are being accepted for a family that was apparently displaced from its home after a massive fire on Friday in Rochester, according to a fundraiser started on Facebook.
According to the fundraiser, the family "lost everything in a fire" that severely damaged a three-story, three-unit building in Rochester on Friday. No one was injured in the blaze, according to numerous fire officials, but the fire did reach a third alarm.
The organizer of the fundraiser, user Joselyn Bianco, did not immediately respond to a Facebook message sent Tuesday afternoon.
Here is the full description from the fundraiser, which had raised $645 of its $2,000 goal at the time of publication.

Another post by a user claiming to be a friend of the family said she was looking for clothes donations since "nothing was salvageable in their apartment," she wrote. A list of needed items can be found here.
