TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A local wrestling team is helping a family put back the pieces after a fire destroyed their home over the weekend.
The fire happened on Sunday at an Americus home.
Investigators with the Buck Creek Fire Department said so much of the home is gone from the fire, it’s impossible for crews to determine the cause. For now, investigators are ruling the fire as accidental.
The family has lost almost everything. Harrison High School junior Bobby Glenn lost most of his wrestling gear and personal belongings.
Now, the Harrison wrestling team is helping their teammate through this tough time by donating gift cards and wrestling gear.
“We’re accepting gift cards to places like Target and Wal-Mart just to help them get necessities, water and stuff like that,” said teammate Myles Krintz.
If anyone in the community is interested in getting involved, the wrestling team is asking donations be dropped off at the Harrison Athletic Office, 5701 N. 50 West, in West Lafayette.
The office will be accepting donations throughout the week.
