Family Of 8 Loses 'Everything' In Bayonne Fire; Fundraiser Started

A GoFundMe campaign has been started for a large family left homeless after a fire in Bayonne Thursday.

No one was injured in the two-alarm blaze, but the multifamily home on Broadway was so severely damaged it will have to be demolished, authorities said. A total of 19 people have been displaced.

Among those are the eight members of a single family -- a woman who shared a home with her five grandchildren, two sons and a "baby on the way," wrote the organizer, who said the grandma is a home attendant working for the organizer's mother.

"They lost everything, all their furniture, clothes, personal belongings and all Christmas gifts. I am asking my family and friends to help me bring a little joy to this family in this time of need," she wrote.
