Fund set up for family whose home burned Tues.
From Staff Reports
July 15, 2007 - A relief fund has been set up for a Sulphur Springs family that was victimized by a house fire earlier this week.
Central Church of Christ, located at 301 Gilmer St., Suite B, has set up the fund at City National Bank to take donations for the family of Jo Ann Ross Kelly.
Kelly, 63, was taken to Mother Frances Hospital in Tyler Tuesday after firefighters rescued her from inside her burning home on East Beckham Street. She was to be released from the hospital Friday after receiving treatment for smoke inhalation.
Kelly and her three sons were living in the house at the time of the fire. While the home was insured, a number of their belongings were smoke damaged. Hopkins County Salvation Army is accepting clothing and donations of money at the HCSA headquarters, located inside The Bait Shop on South Broadway Street. Clothing sizes needed include men’s pants, 33x34, 29x30 and 34x36; and medium, large and extra large shirts.
Donations are also being accepted in the main office at VF Mall, where one of Kelly’s sons is employed.
