Are you able to help?

All Tamara Frankel wants to do is go home.

But after the Denison Street house she had been renting for almost two years went up in flames on Sunday, Tamara, as well as her two children and her flatmate Katrina, are all homeless.

Homeless and left empty handed as the fire took everything they owned as well.

If you are able to help out with accommodation or donations of household goods please call Katrina on 0487 230 392.

There were two houses that burnt down on Sunday.
