Community rallies together for Berlin house fire victims

Community rallies together for local house fire victims

BERLIN, Md. - In Berlin, people are rallying together to help out a family who lost nearly everything in a house fire.

On December 12th, the Koenig's home went up in flames destroying many of their belongings. 

Immediately the community responded to help out. A GoFundMe page has already raised over $11,000 for them in just five days, but that support isn't slowing down. 

There's now a donation drop off location at Berlin's visitor center. It's all in an effort to show the Koenig's they have support from the entire town and reveal a little holiday spirit. 

"The outpouring of love and items and donations is proof enough and the fact that people reached out to me and asked how I can help and how they can help, we all just work together," says Ivy Wells, Berlin's Community Development Director. 

The visitor center is accepting all types of donations from gift cards to storage boxes since the Koenig's lost nearly all of their own in the fire. 

You can drop off any items at the visitor center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
