Duanesburg fire damages vets' home

DUANESBURG -- Jill Montesano was planning on surprising her family just in time for the holidays.

She was scheduled to fly home to her husband Jake on Saturday from her deployment in Qatar. But a devastating fire in the couple's home on Thursday night changed those plans.

Crews are still investigating what may have sparked the fire that claimed the lives of the couple's two German shepherds. In the mean time, friends and relatives have set up a fundraising site for the couple. You can donate by going to http://www.gofundme.com/5umx8c. They have also asked for clothing donations, which can be dropped off at 70 Miracle Lane, Loundonville, New York.

Sources tell CBS6 that the Red Cross is helping Jill get an earlier flight to join Jake, who is also a veteran, in dealing with this tragedy.
