Moving On After Bucyrus Fire


Even a month after a fire swept the small town of Bucyrus, families are still in shock by what happened that windy October day.

Tonight we catch up with one family we talked with after the fire, to find out what this last month has been like.

One month ago we introduced you to Mike Krug, one of the residents in Bucyrus who lost his entire home.

Today the Krugs are living in this farm house outside of Bucyrus, thanks to a friend Mike used to work with.

"He offered us his house to live in, so it's hard to turn down, fully furnished house, but I'll make it up to him," Mike Krug said.

Thankfully for the Krugs, their insurance company is doing what they can to help them.

"I got a call the very next morning from my agent, she was in Fargo and she said, you've got 100% loss on your place, and within five, six days I had a check," Krug said.

Now Mike and his wife are trying to figure out what they had inside the house.

"Me I had a music room in the house, I had like two keyboards, an amplifier, the whole setup and that's all gone," Krug said.

The Krugs plan to head south for the winter, like they do every year. When they get back they'll decide what to do with this land that they called home for decades.

"Don't make any sudden decisions is what they tell us, so we're not going to make any sudden decisions, the lot will sit there until who knows maybe we change our mind by spring," Krug said.

The Krugs might have a roof over their heads this thanksgiving, but this year won't be the same as the decades spent in this Bucyrus home. 

"The emotion will be there for a long time, unfortunately that's how I am," Krug said.

The Dakota Plains Federal Credit Union is still accepting donations for the "Bucyrus Disaster Relief Fund."
