ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (KDKA) – The city of Aliquippa is rallying behind a family who lost everything after their home was badly damaged by two separate fires in two days.

The first fire started Friday in the kitchen of a home on Main Street near Burton Street.

That fire was contained, but the family couldn’t stay there and was sent to a motel overnight.

Around 4 a.m. Saturday, a fire of suspicious origin destroyed the interior of the home and all of its contents.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Meanwhile, churches in the community are offering the family food clothing and a free place to live for two weeks.
