"I’m here to ask, that while he continues to work, we raise money to help him in whatever he needs to get through this extremely hard time."

"Such a devastating loss for my brother," wrote his sister Kaleigh Clark on Facebook. "He lost his dog, who was his best friend, as well as his house, and all of his belongings in this fire."
