School helps classmate’s family recover from fire

Thomas Garcia, PNT Staff Writer

The teachers, staff and students of Lindsey Middle School reached out to help a fellow student after a fire destroyed his family’s home, according to the school’s principal.

On May 5 the Portales Fire Department responded to a report of a fire at 1609 South Ave. I, the home of the family of Sean Fried, a sixth grade student at Lindsey Middle School. A small effort to help the family mushroomed into a larger effort this week.
