(WXYZ) – An auto repair shop in Ira Town has gifted a pickup truck to the Warren family who recently lost their 8-year-old daughter and all of their belongings in a house fire.
The family of six was displaced on March 23 when a fire broke out in their Warren Manor apartment.
Father Ladarrel Brown was able to get all four children out of the house, but eldest daughter, Laurii’ell, faced severe burns to her hands and face.
She was taken to Michigan Children’s Hospital in Detroit and later died from her injuries.
Macomb County Action has reached out to the owner of Auto DR in Ira Town to share the family’s story.
The business has already found a family member to give a car to, increasing happiness for the family.
“It is heartwarming to give back to the community that has supported my business over the past decade. I hope that we can do this every year,” said owner Dustin Rutkowski.
In addition to the Chrysler Town & Country minivan, the family also received a $1,000 gas card.
