BELGRADE — A Belgrade family is without a home after their duplex caught fire early Saturday morning.

Central Valley Firefighters say the fire started around 8 a.m. Saturday on 11th Street in Belgrade, causing significant damage to the home.

Family members, including five children, were able to make it to safety.

Officials say they are still investigating the fire’s cause, and it appears to have started in a garage.

Several community members reached out to MTN News, saying they are gathering donations for the family.

Center Ice Café in Belgrade has helped family members secure temporary housing and has a donation jar set up in the restaurant. People are encouraged to donate gas and dining cards, as well as monetary donations. Clothing and other items may be accepted at a later date once the family’s needs are determined.

Center Ice Café is located at 11 N. Broadway in Belgrade, for anyone interested in making a donation.
