A fund has been set up at Valley First Credit Union in Keremeos to help burn victim Randie Walter of Olalla.

Walter was severely burned in a multi-vehicle fire in Olalla early in the morning of June 10. Walter lost all his possessions and his living quarters in the blaze, suffering first, second and third degree burns to 60 per cent of his body. He is currently recovering in Vancouver General Hospital after beginning skin grafts last week.

According to Robbie Kilborn, Randie’s brother, who also resides on the property, Randie lost everything, including the clothes on his back. The four members of the family who reside on the property are all disabled and have limited means or opportunity to help their sibling.
