BIG SPRING - A Big Spring couple needs the public's help following a fire that destroyed everything in their home.   

Firefighters responded to the fire on Sunday at 500 Father Delaney Ave.

The older couple that lived there got out unharmed, but almost everything inside was lost to fire and smoke damage. Though some pets survived, they lost two puppies to the blaze.

The fire was accidental and caused by a space heater.

Pastor Joel Miller, the local chaplain that works with families in these situations, tells KBYG News that an account as been established at State National Bank under the name Andy Lopez. Mr. Lopez is disabled. 

Mr. and Mrs. Lopez are in great need of clothing too, and his size 5 XL. She is size 20-22. Clothing donations may be dropped off at the Law Enforcement Center on West Highway 80, in the lobby.

Also, the couple are now staying with a relative, but there is no room for their pets that survived the fire, and donations of fencing materials are needed.

If you have any questions, please contact Joel Miller at 432-213-1221.
