HOLLEY – An on-line fundraiser has been started to assist Mark and Rose Porter, whose home was damaged in a fire on Wednesday evening.

Firefighters were dispatched to the Porter residence on North Main Street at about 7 p.m. The front porch was engulfed in flames.

The Porters are active community members. Mrs. Porter works as a nurse. Mr. Porter is a past Holley fire chief. He is a member of the Holley Board of Education and works as the communications captain for Monroe Ambulance.

“Mark is a pillar of the Holley community and beyond, always willing to put his fellow man first, and himself second,” Timothy Wood wrote on the GoFundMe page for the Porters.

“Victims of fires face tremendous emotional stress and financial costs, and we hope this fund will help alleviate some of the challenges that Mark and Rose are facing as they try to move on, and rebuild their lives,” Wood wrote.
