A benefit fund has also been set up for the single mother of four at Meritrust Credit Union. Monetary donations may be made in person at credit union branches in Wichita and Derby or mailed to: “Benefit Fund for Laveana Comick” in care of Meritrust Credit Union, P.O. Box 789757, Wichita KS 67278.

Comick, a certified nurse assistant, was working when fire crews doused flames at her house in the 2600 block of North Spruce on Tuesday. Neighbors feared children were trapped, but Comick’s four daughters – ages 8, 5 and 1-year-old twins – were with their grandmother when the fire started.

The house was deemed a total loss.
