The fire that destroyed the apartments in the Arcola Post Office building last week has displaced Amanda Ramsey and her two children.
Ramsey’s Christmas tree caught fire and forced the evacuation of everyone in the building. Everyone escaped and there were no injuries reported.
All of the tenants’ belongings were lost and the owners of the building do not know yet if they will repair or demolish it.
Ramsey’s sister, Christina VanEvery, has said an Amanda Ramsey Fire Fund has been set up at Farmers & Merchants Bank for anyone who would like to make a donation to Ramsey.
For more information, call VanEvery at 693-0549.
