Community pitches in to help burned-out family

A bank account has been set up to assist a Marcus High School softball coach and her family after a Christmas Day fire destroyed their Flower Mound home.

Brenda and Dan Jacobs and their children watched their house in the 5900 block of Lavon Drive go up in flames on Christmas morning. No one was injured in the blaze, which was caused by the homeowner’s attempt to thaw out frozen pipes with a blowtorch, according to Flower Mound Fire Chief Eric Metzger.

The Marcus softball booster club established a fund for the Jacobs family at Chase Bank under account number 861126704. Donations to the fund can be made at any Chase Bank location.

“We are overwhelmed and humbled by the generosity of all that have been in contact with us either in person or in spirit. We will never be able to truly thank each and everyone of you that has helped but know that you are all our special angels sent from God as a Christmas Miracle,” said Dan Jacobs on a Facebook page that was set up to support the family.
