TROY – The community in Troy is fighting for a man who helped them for decades.

Last month, Chuck Rebhun's family lost everything – including their six dogs – in a fire at their Raymertown home.

Rebhun was a captain with the Troy Fire Department for 30 years before retiring last year. On Saturday, hundreds of people came out to The Hangar on the Hudson for a fundraiser to help the family get back on its feet.

“Chuck would give you his shirt off his back if he could,” said organizer Kyle Miller. “He'd be anywhere for anybody. He would do the same thing for any other guy. We're rebuilding, we're getting it back together for him."

Fortunately, no one was home at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
