Tammy and Rich Seamon lost everything in a fire on January 4th including the family dogs.

The Seamon's, known in West Winfield and surrounding areas as a very giving and helpful family had minimal insurance. Tammy works at Mount Markham School in the cafeteria and also as a bus driver. Her husband Rich is disabled. Their daughter Kalya is a senior at Mount Markham and they also have a son Matthew.

This family lost everything in a morning fire that started in the kitchen of their home on January 4. When the Fire Department received the call the house was already fully engulfed and was beyond saving anything including two family dogs and their puppies.
