New City family still trying to recover nearly 1 week after fire

Posted: Updated:

Nearly one week after a fire destroyed its home, a New City family is continuing to try to get back on its feet.

All six people who lived in the house managed to escape, including one person who was wheelchair-bound.

The family says it is thankful to be alive and grateful for the outpouring of support after it lost everything.

Family members say they are still searching for a permanent place to stay that is wheelchair-accessible.

A fundraiser for the family will be held at the Shamrock Hotel and Bar in Suffern on Nov. 18 at 8 p.m.
