Family Loses Home in Fire

Family Loses Home in Fire

A fire destroyed a home just east of Okmulgee early Friday morning. According to Fire Marshal Rick Chisum, the owner and two grandchildren had already left the residence, but the owner’s daughter was at home at the time of the blaze. She did escape without injury, however the home was a complete loss. Chisum stated the fire originated in the living room area, but no determination has been made as to the cause. The family received assistance from the American Red Cross, but there is also a GoFundMe drive underway to help them. The owner of the home is Mark Gertner, a lifelong resident of the city and also owner of Leo’s Auto Repair. PATRICK FORD
