A devastating fire destroyed this Alden home.

Now, the community is coming together to help the young family who lived there.  A Gofundme Page is set up to help the Dobsons.

“The Dobson Family lost their home to a devastating fire. Let’s help them to rebuild and fill their next home with a lot of love and support,” posted friend, Katie Pfender.

Here is the link to the fundraising page:

Items or giftcards for the family can be dropped off at Alden Presbyterian Church in care of Dobson Family Relief Fund.

There were no injuries reported,  but two cats did perish in the blaze.
