The home is owned by a deployed Ellsworth Air Force Base airman and his wife. The base says when it comes to supporting their own during tragedies like this one, the Air Force is a very tight-knit community.
MSgt. Ethan Peters of the 28th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron says, "When we have things like yesterday, or any kind of tragedy to a member whether they're deployed or not, but especially when they're deployed, the Air Force community has a tendency to just rally around that family. The outpouring of support from the Air Force and the local community already has just been mind blowing so far."
Ellsworth says a number of on-base private organizations have already banded together to offer the victims of the fire food, clothing, shelter and money for their road to recovering from the tragedy.
