A Pot Nets Bayside family lost their home last week.  Fire broke out Wednesday afternoon just before 3:30pm on Sloop Avenue.  Flames were showing when Indian River firefighters arrived at the scene.  The family has lost their home – and a pet cat, which died in the blaze.    They are being helped by the American Red Cross, but the community is also working to help them as well.  Gift cards for local stores, grocery, gas and more will be needed and donation buckets have been set up in some local stores as well as at today’s Pot Nets Lakeside Craft/Vendor show.  There is also a Go Fund Me page for the family –
