A food fund drive for Sherry and Ron Munoz has been set up to help the couple get back on their feet after a fire devastated their home on June 19. Those wishing to help the Munoz can purchase gift cards or donate money at Joliet Foods located at 205 S. Main Street.

According to Joliet Fire Chief Melvin Hoferer the fire started from a wood stove in the couple’s garage and spread to their house, destroying the kitchen and causing extensive smoke damage through the residence.

“They lost their house, garage and vehicles,” he said. “All her camera were melted.”

Joliet Fire Department had the blaze contained within 30 minutes and were assisted in the mop up phase by Roberts and Edgar Fire units.

No one was hurt in the incident.
