Amish Family Loses Home to Montana Wildfire
September 11, 2017
REXFORD, MT - Andy Yoder believes there are lessons to be learned from the ashes that were once his home.
Someday soon — before anyone has a chance to begin cleaning up the charred trees, molten metal and other burned debris — the 34-year-old Amish man will take his family back to its 20-acre parcel that was ravaged on Sept. 2 when the Caribou fire tore through a portion of the state's oldest Amish community in West Kootenai just west of Eureka.
He knows there will be tears.
