PONTIAC (WWJ) – A fire destroyed a home that is part of the Lighthouse of Oakland County’s PATH program for homeless women and their children.
A mother and five children, aged seven to 15, were living in the duplex home on Hovey Street in Pontiac.
They were able to get out and weren’t hurt, but everything they have is gone. The connected second unit was unoccupied but also destroyed.
The family has been moved to another location, but Lighthouse of Oakland County is seeking donations to help the family.
