    Default Willow mushers lost everything in house fire.....could use some help

    Local willow musher Justin and Jamie high lost everything yesterday when their house and shop burned. No lives lost and the dogs OK.
    Justin is mngr at deshka landing so many in the fishing and snowmachine community know them also.

    There is a page set up on the deshka landing site to take donations to help them get back on their feet.

    Mods......hope this is ok to post here.

    Good to hear all parties are safe and physically unharmed!

    Visited Deshka Landing website, saw no direct reference to the assistance effort mentioned in the OP but, there is a small print reference in the facebook window providing this link; http://www.gofundme.com/j40wdc

    Thats it 338wm, the go fund account to help them out, appreciate you posting the link. Justin is a great guy, no insurance on the house they built, etc....they could definitely use some help getting back on their feet.
    Truly sucks......

    Cindy also linked up with the GoFundMe site on our website as well....eaglequestalaska.com
    Working on a plan to house the dog team at the landing so Jamie can keep on training for the iditarod...Some complications there, but hopefully they are being worked as we speak.
