Two adults, a 2-year old boy and two girls, aged 4 and 16, are all being treated for burns. The 16 year old girl is in critical condition at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence.

Recovery from serious burns is often a long, painful and expensive process. The 16-year old young woman faces a daunting process.

News reports in Patch, the Westerly Sun and local television identify resources that are being marshalled to help the family.

Chariho is collecting checks and gift cards. You can send donations to Chariho Regional School District, c/o Eric Dauphinais, 455A Switch Road, Wood River Junction, RI 02894.

Go Fund Me page has been set up to help the family.

Window World of Rhode Island, where one of the family members worked, is collecting gift cards and clothing. They are located at 300 Jefferson Boulevard, Warwick 02888.
