The Lynda and Bob Cross family lost their home in Centralia and their belongings to an electrical fire on the evening of May 2.

Their dog, Elly, died in the fire. The family was not home at the time of the blaze.

Centralia Fire Department responded to the fire at around 8 p.m. after a neighbor raised the alarm.

Lynda, Bob and their youngest children, Bailey and Carson, have found a temporary place to live while they find a new home.

“The community has been wonderful. Anything we have asked for has been provided,” Lynda Cross said. “We cannot thank the community enough. We had a house to live in within 12 hours after the fire.”

Lynda is the director of nursing at Nemaha Valley Community Hospital in Seneca, and Bob is the Nemaha County undersheriff.

The Cross family had lived in the house for almost 16 years.
