An Oswego house fire has left a man with nothing and suffering from severe smoke inhalation after running back in to save his dog.

Wayne Rich suffered a devastating house fire and is being treated at Upstate Medical center. Wayne will be sedated and on a respirator for at least the next several days so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. Along with the loss of all of his clothing and possessions his medical expenses will be considerable. Although we can never replace the items that hold sentimental value to him, we can do whatever we can to help.

Donations of clothes, money, or electronics are being requested to help Wayne.

Shirts/ Sweatshirts- Large or Extra Large
Pants- waist- 31 length- 30
Shoe size 10

All donations to the Wayne Rich Fire Relief fund can be made online or mailed to:

You can also drop off donations at our station on River Road in Marcy until January 31st and we'll make sure they get to Wayne.

Lets show Wayne, when we all pull together, we can make a big difference.
