Fundraising for a Ross Township man whose uninsured home was destroyed by fire last week has exceeded half its goal, so far.
A GoFundMe page was set up to collect contributions for Chris Fromme, who lost all of his posessions in a fire that destroyed his home along Pittview Road on Feb. 8.
As of Friday afternoon, 131 people had donated more than $8,500 toward the $15,000 goal.
Officials believed the fire started in the fireplace.
Firefighters from multiple departments had difficulty getting water hoses to the home because of its location down a winding road. They also were hampered by frigid temperatures that caused water to quickly freeze.
Fromme was uninjured.
