According to Summerville Fire Chief Robbie Lathem, “there is no known cause of the fire determined yet, we got dispatched at 3:44am and the top floor of the home was near fully involvement upon arrival.”

Redmond EMS will be accepting donations:

“Some have called and asked how we can help David Rogers with his devastating house fire this morning. Redmond EMS are taking donations for him so we can get him some immediate help. Contacts will be Cristy Reynolds Harris and Chasity Johnson Bridges. No donation is too small..”
