Nevada Appeal Staff Report

A fund has been set up to help a Carson City family who lost their home to fire the day after Christmas.

While the garage and two upstairs bedrooms sustained fire damage, the entire home was affected by water and smoke damage.

Cash donations can be made to Greater Nevada Credit Union account number 904551.

Donations of household goods or other items may be made to Barbara Andersen at Realty Executives, 1071 S. Carson St.
