Fund for couple who lost all

Neighbors have set up a benefit fund for Jack and Lisa Sauders, the Ramrod Key couple who lost their house at 27383 Anguilla Lane in a fire early Monday.

The Fire Benefit Fund is through Centennial Bank on Big Pine Key. Make donations in person at 200 Wilder Road, or call 305-676-3071 and use a credit card. Donors also may give via the Red Cross at 305-296-4033.

A neighbor who heard the smoke alarm in the Sauders' RV awoke them. They believe the fire started there before jumping to their stilt home. The Sauders lost everything -- their RV, home, and two trailers, one housing two motorcycles.
