After a Guymon family lost their home to a fire last weekend, the boy’s friends and teammates came together to raise money, gathering $5,800 in donations. Noel Nunez’s teammates went door-to-door Monday evening and accepted monetary donations to his family.
The boys basketball team and boys and girls cross country teams raised about $3,900 during the two-hours Monday night.
Guymon High School’s Student Council donated their $400 earned from a hat day fundraiser and gave a $1,000 donation. GHS National Honor Society donated $500.
Noel and his parents lost everything after a fire broke out from their home, located at 917 N.E. 24th St.
Guymon Fire Department said the house was completely destroyed and early estimates showed over a $200,000 loss. Guymon firefighters responded to the fire at 4:22 a.m. Saturday. On arrival, GFD saw flames coming from the roof of the home and said the area was limited to fire hydrants and water. Goodwell and Hooker firefighters were called to assist in putting out the blaze due to the limited access to hydrants in the location. Fire investigators said a heat lamp left on in the garage came in contact with combustible materials, causing the fire to spread to other items in the garage including two parked vehicles.
The home and contents of the home were a complete loss.
