Fire fund established


First Posted: 2/4/2014

After a devastating fire at 30 Silkworth Place in Lake Silkworth on Sunday, Feb, 2, an assistance fund has been established to help this family in need. Donations can be made to The Rambus Assistance Fund at any branch of the Luzerne Bank or by mail to: Luzerne Bank, Attn. Craig Tupper, PO Box 59, Dallas, PA 18612.

Crews battled flames for more than 7 1/2 hours Sunday after the home overlooking Lake Silkworth in Lehman Township caught fire.

The home of Eric and Carol Rambus went up in flames just before 10 a.m. while the couple was at church. Three dogs and a cat died in the blaze.

The Rambuses’ daughter-in-law, Megan Rambus, said the pets’ deaths dealt a devastating blow to her in-laws. The mastiffs, named Sequoia, Choctaw and Digger, were part of the family, she said.
