  • Staff Report 

A GoFundMe has been started for the family devastated by a fire earlier this week in Waterloo.

Multiple departments were dispatched to the scene of the blaze on Wagner Street.

Now, family of the victims say the home was a complete loss. Not only was the home destroyed, but a vehicle and belongings were also ravaged by the flames.

As of late-Monday, the family was also looking for pets who were lost after the fire.

“Hi all – Last night the Ennis family experienced a fire at their family home. The home and all contents were complete losses. Not only were their home, truck, and belongings lost, but several pets as well. Needless to say, Stacey and Jim are completely devastated, and are looking at a long and costly rebuild. Anything that you can give is so appreciated by all of us. Thank you for your support!”

– Amanda Dendis, organizer, via GoFundMe.

Local fire departments had not provided any official update on the blaze as of Tuesday morning.

The fire was in the Border City Fire District, and multiple departments responded to the scene. However, upon law enforcement’s initial arrival on-scene, which came moments after the first call, the two-story home was deemed fully-involved.
