Communities come together to help fire victims

Posted:

HINTON (WVVA)-- The people of Hinton and surrounding communities have come together to help the fire victims.

People have donated bags of clothes, money, furniture, and other items the victims will need. The fire destroyed the homes of about a dozen families. Many of the residents are left with nothing.

Hinton Police Chief D.S. Snavely says Hinton has been contacted by several counties offering to help the residents out. "For a community our size this is basically a disaster. These people are homeless. They made it out with only their lives. It's basically devastation for them. Fortunately no one is hurt and we can rebuild from that, but it's a loss for our people and our city as well," Snavely said.

A fund has been set up through First Community Bank. Donations can be sent to 298 Stokes Drive Hinton, WV 25951.
