Posted at 10:56 PM, Sep 27, 2021

Local residents are working together to help the Uzeta family who lost their Paso Robles apartment in a fire last week.

Dozens of residents were forced to evacuate from that fire.

It broke out just after 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 21, at Dry Creek Apartments.

Two units were destroyed in the fire, including the Uzetas'.

The family of six is staying with various friends and family and say they lost everything they owned in the fire.

Landscape business owner Al Jacobs, who employs the father of the family, has organized a fundraiser to help them get new clothes, food, and other necessities.

"My family really appreciates what everyone is doing to help us get through these really tough times and we're just really grateful for what they are doing for us," said Obed Uzeta.
