About a week and a half ago, the Breckenridge Fire Department responded to a fire on County Road 311, and a couple of accounts have been set up to help one local resident get back on her feet.

When the firefighters got to the scene, one house was already “fully involved and a grass fire was threatening several other homes,” the BFD reported on Facebook. Several storage units and one house were destroyed, but the fire department was able to stop the fire from spreading to other houses. Helping at the scene were the Hubbard Creek Volunteer Fire Department, Stephens County Sheriff’s Office and Sacred Cross EMS.

Brenda Raulston’s home burned to the ground in the Aug. 24 fire, and her daughter, Patience Madison has set up an account at Graham Savings and Loan, as well as an online Spot Fund account to help her mom get moved into a new apartment. In the Spot Fund post, Madison explains that community members have donated clothing and essentials for her mom, who lost everything she owned in the fire, but that she needs some money for the deposit on the apartment, as well as upcoming rent payments.

Donations can be made at Graham Savings to the account in the name of Brenda Raulston or Patience Madison, or online at Spot Fund (click here).
