The Don and Carol Jilovec home in rural Mechanicsville burned down Friday, Dec. 23.

Carol said that she had just been getting ready to take a shower and had taken off her Fitbit watch at the dining room table at roughly 8 p.m.

Jilovec home remains

All that remains from the Jilovec home following the fire near the holidays is the chimney. The two story house burned down during the blizzard Friday, Dec. 23. A fund has been established to help the Jilovec family at Mount Vernon Bank and Trust.
