Fund established for family that lost home in explosion

Posted:

ADAMS COUNTY (WAOW) -- A fund has been established for the Adams County family who lost their home in an explosion, last weekend.

Donations to the The Granger Fire Medical Fund can be made at any Nekoosa Port Edwards State Bank.

The Granger family home is a total loss and the family's son was injured the incident. The blast was so powerful it shot the garage door into the driveway. Pieces of siding and debris shattered through the back window of this truck. Flames also destroyed a nearby camper.

First responders found Matthew Granger in the front yard with visible burns to his face and hands.

He was taken by ambulance to a landing area and then flown out by helicopter. Granger's father, Tim, owns the home but was out at the time of the explosion.

Firefighters from the Town of Rome and Big Flats tackled the blaze while Nekoosa ambulances stood by to treat exhausted workers.
