Burke Family House Fire

As many of you in our community already know, The Burke Family has suffered unimaginable loss over the last 18 months.

Kyle and Jenna Burke, with their children Bentley and Emma, lost their house, and their dog Mason, to a fire in September 2019.  A tragedy no one ever wants to go through. Following that fire, they have spent the last year and a half rebuilding a new house. Both Kyle and Jenna spending every free moment overseeing, helping, and finishing work at the house.  They have missed the last year with their children, because they were working tirelessly to finally have a place called home. Then, just weeks after the house was finished, another fire on Thursday, February 18th. A replica of the first time, they have once again lost everything. Thankfully, everyone is safe.  

Unimaginable. The idea that one family can lose everything not only once, but twice.  The unbearable thought that a 5 and 8 year old should ever have to face something like this. Twice. The heartbreak that the entire family feels is so unfair. To finally be done their house and have some solace, just to have it ripped away from them in the blink of an eye.

Our hope is that this GoFund Me page will help support them in any way they need. From personal belongings to bill payments to services and fees. The hard truth is that the second time around is going to be much more challenging, with a lot of uncertainties.

With any loss, we all know the best way to get through it is with the support of friends, family and community. With everyones donations, we hope to reduce their stress and give them some reassurance that they will get through this, once again. ❤️
