Genoa family thankful for area’s support after blaze
GENOA – Resident Chris Rasmussen has received money to help his family after their house was severely damaged in a fire Friday, but very little has been spent.
“We were overwhelmed [last] weekend. We have now just started to [gather supplies],” Rasmussen said. “We have hardly spent anything because we are still wrapping our heads around it.”
Rasmussen said he was thankful to police, firefighters and others who responded to a fire coming from the roof of his home at 16625 Route 72 about 4:45 a.m. Friday. In addition to Genoa-Kingston firefighters, departments in Sycamore, DeKalb, Hampshire, Boone, Cherry Valley and Pingree Grove responded.
