HOW YOU CAN HELP: Members of a Fair Lawn family whose home was destroyed by fire today are holding a garage sale tomorrow and Sunday to help their loved ones. Meanwhile, firefighters returned late tonight after the blaze rekindled in the attic.
“My parents, my sisters Grace Elizabeth and Starr Marion, lost EVERYTHING,” a sibling named Serena Marion posted on Facebook tonight. “This is how everyone can help us.
“Please come buy our [stuff] and to make room in our apartment for my parents and sister.”
Marion’s home is at 14-10 George St., across from Fair Lawn police headquarters.
“Please come stop by to buy something or bring a clothes item or two for my family,” Marion wrote.

The roof of the 2½-story, 5th Street house collapsed in the three-alarm blaze, which broke out around 2:45 p.m. and took the life of a pet dog and cat.
Some neighbors were temporarily evacuated.
The cause wasn’t immediately determined, but it wasn’t believed suspicious.
Firefighters from Glen Rock and Saddle Brook assisted, while their colleagues from Elmwood Park and Rochelle Park remained on standby.
A rekindle in the attic brought firefighters back a little after 11 p.m.
