We are sharing this from our friends at Historic Youngstown.


At approximately 1:30 a.m. this morning it did just that for one of the lower Niagara River region’s nicest families. The Kromer family and their four-legged family member, literally got out with their lives, because of a quickly spreading fire that started in the garage, quickly destroyed their home.

Today wonderful members of the community, their family at the First Presbyterian Church of Youngstown, and friends were salvaging what they could from the home, pictured here on Oak St., in historic Youngstown, NY.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to assist the family here:

If you are in a position to help at all, it would be VERY much appreciated.
