SUMNER — The GGB&D Store on Route 219 will serve breakfast Sunday, Feb. 6, to benefit a couple who lost their home in a fire last week.

Terrance and Samantha Dunham were in their 2½-story, wood-frame farmhouse at 121 Lower Sumner Hill Road when the fire began about 6 a.m. Jan. 26, Assistant Fire Chief Walter Litchfield Jr. said. The couple escaped unharmed.

A dozen fire departments battled the blaze, which consumed the house and its contents. The couple had no insurance on the property, Litchfield said.

An investigator with the State Fire Marshal’s Office was unable to determine the cause due to the extent of destruction, he said.

All proceeds from breakfast served between 7 and 11 a.m. Sunday will go to the Dunhams, who reportedly are staying with a son in Auburn.

The menu includes eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast, omelets, breakfast sandwiches, corned beef, hash browns, fries and grits.

The GGB&D store is owned by James and Karen Henry, who opened it in August. They serve meals, sell groceries and recently began offering gasoline for sale.
