CANAAN – Residents of Canaan are rallying to help a young woman who lost her home to fire.
Laura Dudley, 28, told reporters she was in her mobile home on Browns Corner Road Saturday afternoon when the home started filling with smoke. She managed to escape with some of her pets, but the home and most of her belongings were lost.
Dudley suspects the fire was caused by an external heater she had been using just before the fire started.
People in the community are now gathering donations to help her get back on her feet.
