Fundraiser held for family who lost home in fire

A fundraiser was held in Nanuet earlier today to help raise money for a family that had lost their home in a fire last month.

The Dragon's Den Mixed Martial Arts Academy held the fundraiser for the Almonte family after they lost everything in the fire.

The family found a new home to live in and they say the funds raised will help offset the cost of moving.

"I've never been more optimistic in my life," said Katherine Almonte. "We just all knew that everything was just gonna be OK."
