So very sad. Not only did this Cranford family get hit by Hurricane Irene and recently were in the process of rebuilding, but they now are having to cope with a fire which has destroyed their home. Hoping that the citizens of Cranford may be able to make a small donation to this family to replace their personal items lost in the fire.
