Home goes up in smoke, locals rally to help


But what has impressed him as much as anything has been the efforts of his grandson Eric Peterson and his wife Brittany, who have established an online crowdfunding campaign at gofundme.com. The campaign is listed as “Helping the Petersons.” She and Eric live in Oklahoma but said the Douthit home was “where everybody united.”

According to the website, the fund-raising goal is $3,000 and $895 had been raised as of 1:20 p.m. Tuesday, April 1.

“Anything can help,” Paxton notes on the website, and has also listed clothing sizes for each family member affected by the fire. She also notes, “These are the people who make sure your morning papers are delivered every day.”

They have received free storage from Armor Storage, Britanny Peterson said, and anyone can take donations there and mention they are donating to the Petersons.

The site can be accessed through a link on the Mineral Wells Index Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mineralwellsindex.

Mrs. Peterson can also be contacted at 940-452-1419.
