(TULSA, Okla.) Active and retired Tulsa police officers spent their Saturday helping to gut a house that had been heavily damaged by smoke after a fire last month. Local community members also pitched in. The fire happened at a home near East 32nd Street North and North Peoria Avenue during the early morning hours of January 28. We’re told the mom suffered first and second degree burns and was transported to the hospital. Three children were also in the house at the time but were not injured. The family lost all of their possessions, and is now homeless and staying with friends. Blue Light Ministries, a Tulsa 201c3 non-profit that provides spiritual care for members of the Christian law enforcement community, is spearheading the effort to help the family, who we’re told did not have homeowners’ insurance. “I spoke with the family yesterday,” Blue Light Ministries Tulsa Executive Director Sean Terrell said. “They are doing okay, but understandably distraught over losing their family house and all their possessions.” Anyone interested in helping the family can go to www.bluelightministries.org/donate and designate their gift to "The Johnson Family House Fire.” Those who want to donate clothing or other items can contact@bluelightministries.org.
