A 90-year-old Brunswick man escaped a household fire early Wednesday morning.

The fire is considered a total loss. DePeel is in need of clothes — pants with a 42” waist, XL sweatpants, 8-8/12 mens shoes. DePeel also loves to read and would appreciate books with large print.
An account has been set up at Brunswick State Bank for those who would like to make a monetary donation. Please mark it Mearl DePeel Donations.
