Durham Youth Group Raises Money For Victims Of Apartment Fire

Posted May 24, 2005

— A Durham church youth group is helping a family that was burned out of their home.

The Covenant Presbyterian Church youth group raised close to $3,000 in just two weeks.

On Tuesday, they handed over the check to a family who lost everything last month after a fire ripped through the Royal Oaks Apartments, leaving 19 families homeless.

Investigators believe an overloaded extension cord sparked the fire.
