The fire completely destroyed the house

A La Plaine family is now homeless after a massive fire completely consumed their place of abode on Sunday evening.

Mario Graham and Debra Cuffy lost everything in the fire which took place at around 10:00 pm, according to reports.

The cause of the fire is unknown and DNO is seeking an official report from the fire department.

Meanwhile, Chairman of the La Plaine Disaster Preparedness Management Committee, Jason Fontaine, said all necessary steps are being taken for a course of action to assist the family.

“They lost everything they had, our hearts and prayers are with them,” he said.

    So sorry to hear that this family’s house caught fire. I wonder what could have caused it. Thank God no one was injured.
    I visualize how their hearts hurt and how difficult it is for them to have lost everything. At least they will be getting help.
    A bit of comforting words. It may take time but everything will work out. Take heart.
    May God give you the strength and peace of mind to cope.

    Jason Fontain??? Chairman of the Village Council. Well again, every soul from Laplaine has moved to New Jersey, so the likes of Jason are left to lead the pack. What a ting.

        This person probably knows whose house burned down. However, if the name was not mentioned he/she should not have stated it and should have waited until the name is mentioned. This person is tactless.

        That is the way it is with some people. They do not show compassion; probably has none..

      At least if you’re going to down press Jason, get the facts straight, he’s the chairman on the preparedness committee, not the counsel. At least he decided to do something good with his life, unlike the many on here who hide behind pseudonyms and the internet to do their dirty work. Learn to give honor where it’s due man. Sure he made bad choices and maybe still makes them today, but it is comments and attitudes like yours that cause so many to give up when they feel the pressure, because if they cannot be appreciated for the good that they do, then they might as well keep doing bad.

      How about we give a hand up instead of a slap to the face?

      Promises galore, you are definitely one of those jealous(BLUE) haters! You All(anti-developers) always like to jump to conclusion without facts. No wonder why you all keep paying monies for your tongues. What has Jason done to you? Are you any better than him? At least his is doing something others appreciate. What have you done or doing for others to compliment? I would urge you to read and understand before you point your finger. That’s the ting……

    • July 19, 2016

      my people again just quick to jump and make comment so they can be on the news to please people get the fax right before commenting.

      @dhestini you are such a foolish senseless person…only an illiterate and brainless person would say such…you find thats the best thing to say in a situation like this
      If it was one of your family member or you thats the last thing you would want to see somebody say…you’re just a waste…..May the good Lord be with you and fix that dumb brain of yours….stupesssssss

      What a heartless person you are. You hurt the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ who taught us, “To love one another” no matter what. You offend Him by not being kind to your fellow person whose house burned down. Are these your best words? You will be punished.
      Think of how many people will read your ungodly comments. Do you know what could happen to you and even when you are sleeping? Some people never think. This is your admonishment. More to come for your heartlessness.

        I guess he or she never got some attention so him/ her is looking for it…
        God shall deal with whoever it is
