Family In Need After House Fire

MEDFORD, Ore. – A Medford family is still shaken up by a fire that destroyed their home a day before Thanksgiving.

The Newcombe family is temporarily staying at a hotel, but is asking the community to help them get back on their feet.

On Wednesday, flames destroyed half of the family’s home. No one was home at the time and fire crews are still investigating how it started.

“It’s not livable, definitely not livable,” said Jen Newcombe. “Anything would help; cash, gift cards…We’re just going to have to start all over again.”

You can send gift cards or cash donations to 722 New Town Street, Medford, Oregon, 97501. The couple has one 12-year-old boy and three girls, aged 11, 9 and 4.

    I need to know more before I donate. When I was 12, our house burned down and my dad refused help from the community. I want to help, but I just can’t send an anonymous check to an address…

  2. Summer Williams says:

    As devastating a fire can be, the parents own two gas stations in Ashland and multiple rentals in Medford and Central Point. The dad drives a International Hauler which is a $100k vehicle. She drives a very expensive truck as well. I question the parents’ ethics when there are those much more in need.

    Shame on you Paul Newcombe for posing as a “needy” family.
    There are too many really needy folks out there in our community who desparately need help from you and the rest of us.
    Sorry for the partial loss of you house.
