Marlinton receives overwhelming support

— According to a release from the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office, the response from area communities in donating clothing and other needed items to fire victims in Marlinton has been overwhelming.

The citizens are now asking that donations halt until further notice so that the families can get organized in their new dwellings. The families also request that those who still wish to donate monetarily consider the fire departments in that area that suffered damaged equipment in fighting the Sunday blaze that destroyed four buildings and displaced businesses and residents.
