After Family Loses Their Home In Fire, Strangers Come Together To Help

On Jan. 29, Vaughan Luton, Lori Rippy and their four children lost their house to a fire in Aliquippa, Pa., KDKA2 reported.

The family was left with no home, no insurance and no belongings.

"We’re homeless," Luton told KDKA2. "All we have is each other, so just continue to be strong and believe God will provide for us."

After hearing the tragic news on the radio, a stranger named George Milligan offered the couple a home that he owns, TimesOnline.com reported.

"It was very uplifting," Lori told Yahoo of Milligan's decision. "One of the most wonderful things someone has done. He was definitely a godsend at a time in need, it was a dark hour for us and he came shining through with a house."

While that house gets fixed up for the family's arrival -- some plumbing work needs to be done -- another property owner has offered them a temporary apartment in the meantime, KDKA2 reported.

The family's daughter-in-law and her friends have also organized a fundraiser to help pay for food, clothing, furniture and appliances, Yahoo reported. To date, they've raised more than $8,600.
