A local family narrowly escaped a house fire on Hardwood Road, above, in the early morning hours last Wednesday. According to reports, the family was forced to climb out a window to escape the blaze.
The family lost their house, pets, and all their belongings, but residents have organized a donation drive at the Plainville Fire Department. Donations can be dropped at the station at 77 West Main St.
Residents are collecting dongations of clothes, toys, household items, and gift cards for the displaced family.
