George has a wife, Helen and eight children ranging in age from three to 11 years old. But due to a fire about two weeks ago, George's family is separated and they really don't have much more tlian the clothes on their back. And the family wants to get backtogcthcr for two reasons: they've never been separated before and both adults believe in the importance of getting their kids an education. The family lost everything in the fire, which leveled their single-storey frame building just inside the Blood Indian re- serve, about six miles from ttie LeOibridge airport. The fire, which began when a kerosene lamp fell off a table into a corner, left George's family in just their nighl clothes nothing else: no slices, clothes or anything. The fire swept through the dwelling so that Geo- rge was happy just to get his family out without anyone he ing injured. The night of the fire, the family stayed with neighbors The following day seven a Ihc children were sent to thci grandmother, who lived on an other part of the reserve abou 40 road miles away.
