Saint Thomas’ Episcopalian Church is holding a special charity event for victims of last year’s fire in Dubois. That fire destroyed or damaged over half a dozen downtown businesses.

“Give Your Heart to Dubois” will be held on February 14th; Valentine’s day and will feature dinner, live music and auctions for art and homemade pies. Dubois resident Cathy Traenor is on Mayor’s committee for the event, and says the charity will help some of those business owners with other expenses.


After a fire destroyed multiple buildings and businesses in downtown Dubois last Tuesday, town residents set up a fundraising page to help those affected.

The money is being raised through the crowd funding website “Go Fund Me.” The organizers are planning to turn over the money to the local non-profit Needs of Dubois, which helps residents financially in times of crisis.

Ellen Jungck  is the president of “Needs of Dubois.” She says the organization will use the money to help pay for things like food, utility bills, and rent bills for victims of the fire.


Three historic buildings and eight businesses were destroyed in an overnight fire in Dubois. Town Clerk Sandy Hurst says the fire started at 8:00 p.m. Tuesday night and was under control around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

Firefighters from Dubois and the surrounding area had to battle temperatures around 25 below zero. Hurst says federal officials will help determine what caused the fire.
