An account for a man and his family who lost their home in a fire has been established at Arvest Bank.

Donations may be made at any area Arvest Bank branch, a bank spokeswoman said.

Courtney Tate and his family, which includes his wife and two young daughters, lost their home to a house fire early Easter morning.

Tate said firefighters told him that the blaze was electrical and that it started in the attic.

There were no injuries.
