Donations for Family of Arlington Fire Victims

20140124_090342-1The names of the five people killed in a house fire near Arlington last Friday morning have not yet been released. But a fund drive for the family has been established at Grandview Health Care Center in Oelwein. Grandview administrator Craig Allen says the drive was put together by a couple of the center’s employees. A couple of the family members have been long-term co-workers with the care center. The fundraiser was organized as a way for employees to help the family, but Allen said anyone can send monetary donations to the Grandview Health Care Center at 800 5th Street Southeast, Oelwein, IA 50662 and they’ll be directed to the family. Ron Humphrey, with the State Fire Marshal’s office, said on Friday that the damage to the home is so bad that the cause of the fire may never be known.
