Fundraising website set up for woman who lost home

Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue firefighters spray water under a trailer that caught fire late Wednesday afternoon at 583 Second Street. No one was home when the fire started. It was thought the fire started outside but the cause was unknown. Neighbor Tim Hancock was able to save a cat and three dogs from inside the trailer. The trailer is owned by Tammy Shupp, a Routt County Communications dispatcher.

A fundraising website has been set up for the woman whose home was destroyed by a fire Wednesday in Steamboat Springs. The website is gofundme.com/8z5n9snnzw.

The home, at 583 Second St., was owned by Tammy Shupp, a Routt County Communications dispatcher for the past 12 years.

"She gives her all to help people in their time of need," friend Julie McComas said on the website. "Today, she needs your help."

According to the website, property not destroyed in the fire was ruined by smoke and water damage. Shupp did not have insurance to cover the losses.
