Family loses everything in house fire

A devastating fire left has a Mamou family homeless and now they are in need of help.

It took firefighters three hours to put out the blaze which investigators later determined was caused by an electric heater. The family of four made it out safely, but lost everything. There has been an outpouring of help from the community and beyond, even from as far away as New York.

Mamou Lieutenant Chris Paul says they’ve raised almost four thousand dollars in only two days. Donations and items are being accepted at the Mamou Police Department.
