Ellsworth Fire Update 

(WABI) – Flames destroyed Brenda and Albert Varnum’s home last Wednesday, leaving the couple and their four children between the ages of 8 and 15 homeless.

The Varnums lost their dog and almost everything inside their home.

A fund has been set up at the First National Bank to help the family get back on their feet.

Donations can be dropped off at any branch, or they can be mailed to the First National Bank at post office box 1099 in Ellsworth.

The family specifically needs twin size beds, dressers, a stove, and other kitchen items. Those items can be dropped at Brown’s Appliance in Ellsworth.
