A Lewis Township firefighter and his family were lent a home for the holidays after his was burnt down.
On Dec. 2, John "JJ" Lyons was out hunting when he received a call informing him his house was on fire. It was later revealed the fire started in his basement, causing $400,000 worth of damage. He, his wife Jessica, and their five-year-old daughter were homeless.
"We had no idea what we were going to do or where we were going to go. We didn't know we would be OK,” Lyons told WNEP-TV.
When Joe Miller, a complete stranger to the family, heard about their strife, he offered them his recently deceased mother's house until they could get back on their feet, free of charge.
"I told JJ that we can't bring his house back. We can't bring his dog or his cat back but could help him this way and it means a lot for us to do that," Miller said.
