The Oak Hill Wildfires

Over the weekend, as all of us Austinites know, there was a wildfire that swept through the Scenic Brook neighborhood just behind the ACC campus at the "Y".

Ten homes were completely destroyed. One of them belonging to a friend of mine. Yep, that's her house here on the Fox 7 video below.

She, her husband and their two baby boys lost everything. Not only their home but the kids' toys, clothing, pictures, furniture, even the little things like kitchen utensils, hair brushes, make-up, dog bowls. All gone.

Friends of the family have set up a website to collect donations to help this young family after the devastating loss of their home and everything they owned. If you would like to help click here. Any little bit helps.

If you know someone else who was effected by this fire and is in need of help, feel free to leave the information in the comments section and how to go about getting them aide.
