Fire in Garwin

Early morning fire sunday in Garwin, Trailer was a TOTAL loss. Young man and his 6 year old daughter. They lost everything. Fire Chief Tim Laffoon isn't really saying how it started but this is the 2nd fire in a few months. Some people are saying arson. A donation fund is set up to help this man, he had no insurance and lost everything! Donations can be sent to US BANK main street Marshalltown IA c/o Ray Andersen Fire Fund.
