UPDATE (01/29/21):

ROWAN COUNTY, Ky (WTVQ) – A family of eight is now homeless after an early morning fire at their home in Elliottsville.

The mom, Kathy Holbrook and her children were able to safely evacuate their home at three in the morning with no injuries.

Their home and all their belongings were destroyed by the fire that firefighters have not determined the cause of.

After the Holbrook family lost their two story home in the Elliottsville community, a local non-profit reached out to offer some assistance.

Gateway Helping Hands is a non-profit thrift store and food bank that worked with the family to find them food, clothes and medical supplies.

“They have been trying to scramble all day today and get medicines that they all had. Of course its hard to get medicine that you already had filled even though you’ve lost it in a fire. When you’ve lost everything other than the clothes on your back you got to have everything,”says, Randy Newsome, a volunteer coordinator for Gateway Helping Hands.
