Maxwell House Fire: Family Escapes Unharmed

It didn’t take long for the Maxwell Community to respond to the needs of the family who lost everything in a devastating fire.

Preliminary ruled as arson, at around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, February 11th, 2014, the Maxwell Fire Department was dispatched to a home on Central Street fully engulfed in flames.

Williams and Colusa fire departments were also dispatched to assist to combat the blaze.

Upon arrival, authorities found the homeowners vehicle had also been vandalized at the time of the fire, deeming the fire as suspicious.

The homeowner Alejandro Garcia, his wife and four children escaped the home unharmed.

An outpouring of community support started as soon as word spread of the devastation.

A spokesperson for the family said that clothing and other essential items were donated, in addition to donations and gift cards to help the displaced family.

“Mr. Garcia wants to extend his overwhelming thanks to all who have donated,” said the spokesperson.

The Maxwell Fire Department and the Colusa County Sheriff’s Department are investigating the details of the fire.

How to Help:
The family is currently looking for a rental home in Maxwell, and will be needing furnishings.
Gift cards to department stores also handy so the family can shop for personal basic necessities.
Anyone wishing to help this family in need is asked to drop off items at Maxwell High School, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
