Community fundraising efforts to help a long-time Lake Wenatchee family following a deadly house fire has reached more than $7,500 of a $4,000 goal in less than a week.
A fire at the home of Christine and John Humphreys near Fish Lake on Christmas Eve killed 71-year-old Christine and completely destroyed the house. Authorities believe the fire was caused by burning candles or incense. John and the couple’s son Will are staying at a hotel and their dog at a foster home.
Lake Wenatchee-area residents are asking for help raising money and collecting necessities for John and Will.
John Humphreys worked here at KOHO 101 for more than a decade.
