Family Loses Everything To House Fire, Help Needed

After a devastating house fire, a family of six is left with nothing. The fire happened after 6pm Wednesday night in Richard, leaving the Bernard family with nothing but the clothing on their backs.

Their double wide trailer was almost completely remodeled after being torn to bits by hurricanes Ike and Gustav. Fire officials say the cause of the fire may be electrical. The majority of the damage is on the left hand side of the house, that's the children's side. It completely burned three bedrooms, a bathroom, and a play room. The Bernard family now has to start all over.

The Bernard's have four children, three boys and one girl. The boys are two, three, and 12. The girl is nine. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated.
