TOWN OF BYRON, WI (WTAQ) - A small town south of Fond du Lac is coming together, to help a family that lost its home to a fire on Christmas Eve.
Don Hanneman's house in the town of Byron was destroyed on the same day that his son came back home from serving in Afghanistan.
The fire spared a nearby shop where he owns HD Welding and a trucking outfit.
Residents have been splitting wood to help heat his business. A friend created a bank account where donations can be sent.
The owner of a tattoo parlor has been collecting gift cards and household items for Hanneman's family. He says he plans to rebuild, and he's got the insurance to do so.
The cause of the fire is still undetermined.
