Sheriff’s sergeant loses all in house fire
By LeaAnne Klentzman
Fellow employees at the Sheriff’s Office have scheduled a fundraiser for one of their own.
Sergeant Daphne Marin and her family lost everything, including their pets in a devastating house fire during the bitter freeze earlier this month. Sheriff’s spokesman Bob Haenel said “The fundraiser will feature a chopped beef brisket sandwich, chips and a beverage for $7. The event will be held at 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014. Pickup will be in the parking lot of the Gus George Law Enforcement Academy, 1521 Eugene Heimann Circle in Richmond, across from the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office and the Fort Bend Justice Center.”
Haenel said the fire that destroyed the Marin’s home broke out about 8:40 p.m., on the evening of January 6, 2014. He went on to explain that in sub-freezing conditions at the home on North 1st Street in Beasley, the Beasley Volunteer Fire Department along with Rosenberg Fire Department and Needville Volunteer Fire Department were unable to save the structure. The Marins lost their pets, all their belongings and had no insurance.
