MOULTON, AL (WAFF) -

Tragedy struck a family that lost their home for a second time on Friday.

Joan and Gary Bendall lost their home in the 2011 EF-5 tornado. Tragedy struck again on Friday when a fire destroyed their new home and almost all of their contents.

Fire fighters from Moulton and Chalybeate were called to the scene around 4:15 p.m. They said flames were visible when they arrived.

A Good Samaritan account for Joan Bendall was opened at Bank Independent for donations. The account number is 6354866. Deposits can also be made at any Bank Independent location, or can be sent to P.O. Box 5000 Sheffield, AL 35660. The account will stay open for 30 days before the accumulated donations will be given to the Bendalls.
