Colebrook reaches out after blaze
The Colebrook Fire Department was called out at 6 a.m. to the modular home owned by Raymond Champagne. According to Fire Chief Brett Brooks, Champagne, his wife Judy, their two children, 12-year-old Damien and eight-year-old Blake, and two other children were in the house when the smoke detectors went off.
The Colebrook and Beecher Falls fire departments had cleared the scene by around 8:30 a.m., but Colebrook was called again at 9:30 a.m. for a report that the fire had rekindled. Chief Brooks said they believed the fire was fully extinguished, but the house's blown-in insulation reignited.
Within hours of the fire, fundraising efforts were underway to help the displaced family as they prepare for a new arrival at Christmastime.
