BREAKING: House destroyed by fire Friday

A Darfur family’s home was destroyed by a fire Friday night and relief efforts for the family are underway.

The Mike and Kristina Rehnelt home in Darfur was destroyed in the fire. The Rehnelts have three children who attend Mt. Lake Public School.

Mt. Lake Area Activities Director Tim Kirk helped organize a relief effort to assist the family, with many in the area donating clothing and money. Kirk stated that a Gofundme page has been set up for the family.

“It’s still early. We’ll have a better idea of everything the family needs in the coming days,” Kirk said.

Kirk said that people who wish to donate for the Rehnelt family can either do so directly via the Gofundme site, or by contacting Kirk at (507) 380-2869.
