A former Franklin County Humane Society shelter manager lost all of her possessions in a house fire Wednesday morning.
WLEX 18 reported that Angie Stewart’s Woodford County home suffered significant damage from flames in a small area and smoke throughout the rest of the residence.
Stewart saw the flames around 8 a.m. Wednesday and was able to get herself and her dogs out safely, according to the report.
Firefighters arrived within three minutes, but officials told the station that the house might be a total loss.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Humane Society President Sam Marcus encouraged people on Facebook to donate to Stewart.
“We dedicate ourselves to our furry friends, who need us badly, but sometimes our human friends need help too,” Marcus wrote. “… Please help Angie if you are able!”
Donations may be made at Kentucky Employee Credit Union, 100 Moore Drive, to the Angie Stewart Charity Fund, Account 11, in care of Barbara L. Murray.
