Benefit Saturday for displaced victims of explosion, fire
Hamburgers and hot dogs are on the menu Saturday in a benefit with proceeds to go to displaced victims of Tuesday’s explosion and fire.
Kevin Kees, regional vice president of Primerica Financial Services, 1119 N First St., Suite F, said his office will host the benefit from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Donations will also be accepted during office hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Kees said any donation which may require after-hours contact can be arranged by calling him directly, 970-250-9382.
The Fellowship of Christian Athletes’ chapter at CMU identified the five people who lived at 1742 N. Seventh St., displaced by fire after flames had spread from nearby 1752 N. Seventh St., which was rocked around 12:45 p.m. by an explosion that injured three people.
