As you all know, there was a house fire on Woodland Drive Friday, January 27 last week. We really appreciate everyone’s concern, sweet messages and support so far. For now, if you’re interested in helping the family, please keep an eye out for Roxy (poster below) and consider donating to the family’s GoFundMe page. We will update the blog and the Facebook page as we can.
Below is a message the family gave on January 31:
“Here is our current situation.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation so nothing can be removed or moved until that is complete. That is why there is no activity onsite. The burn is very unstable and dangerous and will continue to deteriorate, so people need to stay away. If neighbors see someone at the house who is not an official fire investigator they need to ask what their business is and report any suspicious activity. It could be a month before demolition can happen.
One dog still missing. We are ever hopeful but very sad.
We are well cared for by local friends and family for which we are grateful. We have a very responsive insurance company who is handling our meals and housing and necessities as well. We just found a house to rent today, which a major step forward.
Donations of meals or clothing is just not practical right now although so appreciated as we just have no place for anything!! There is a go fund me site started, Taylor Family House Fire, Park City UT.
I will update more as appropriate.
The kindness of strangers has been wonderful and restorative. Make sure you dig out your fire hydrants! That is the thing that saved our garage.
Jessica, Brett, Darwin and Mia”
