Fund for fire victims
The community is rallying around a Glen Roy family whose home was destroyed Saturday night.
Rory and Missy Buchan and their three children lost their home on Squire Road in the blaze. While all family members were able to escape the flames, the house was a complete loss, reports South Glengarry Fire Chief Dave Robertson.
A strong west wind hampered early attempts to extinguish the fire, adds the chief whose department was assisted by crews from North Glengarry’s Apple Hill station. The cause is under investigation. Meanwhile, friends have begun a fund-raising drive to help the family recover. Details can be found in our Martintown column.
