Work Begins To Replace House Where Fire Killed 7

LOYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) – Work is under way on a new farmhouse to replace the one where seven children perished in a fierce fire.

Ted Clouse, the children’s father, said Friday that neighbors who have a construction business are building a two-story house on his central Pennsylvania dairy farm to replace the one that burned late Tuesday night near Loysville.

Clouse said he’s been impressed by the outpouring of support and offers to help in the aftermath of the fire. He said it takes away some of the pain.

The funeral is scheduled for Tuesday at the Perry Mennonite Reception Center in Elliottsburg. Burial will be at the Church of the Living Christ cemetery in Loysville.
