Thanks to Lisa for sharing:
“Early Sunday morning (Jan 5, 2020), a fire gutted a duplex row house in the 400 block of Madison St. NE, displacing a family of 8 who have lost everything.
The family is stable and recovering. Matriarch of the family, Mrs. Caviness-Bey sustained 2nd degree burns to her face and arm and broke her wrist and pelvis when she jumped from the second floor bedroom nearly escaping the fire after dropping her 2 year old grandson out the window to safety. The other two granddaughters ages 14 and 7 are also doing well and were able to get out the front door escaping the fire. The family dog was found safe, and is now being cared for by a neighbor.
ANC 4B09 Commissioner LaRoya Huff has organized a Donation Drive, to take place on Wednesday, January 8th from 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm at Riggs-LaSalle Recreation Center. They are working with the family to determine next-steps as regards setting up a GoFundMe account as well.
