Neighbors join forces to help fire stricken family

Posted: Updated:
PORTSMOUTH, R.I. -

Neighbors and family members have put together an effort to raise money for a Portsmouth family that lost everything in a house fire on Saturday.

The fire destroyed the family's home on Summit Road. A young couple and their young children lived there.

Donations for the family are being collected at the Portsmouth Fire Department. A private Facebook group has also been formed to coordinate the group's efforts.

Strong winds caused concern of the fire spreading to nearby homes, and surrounding neighbors were evacuated from their homes.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control before it could spread, but not before it destroyed the house.
