Investigators say a young girl, Sarah Johnson, died in the explosion.  Her parents and two children were also in the home at the time of the explosion and were seriously injured.  Two other children were not home at the time of the explosion.

A Johnson Family Benefit Fund has been set up at the First Niagara Branch in Wilson, but donations will be accepted at any First Niagara Branch.

Two churches are accepting gift card donations to help the family.  They were accepting clothing, but the response was so overwhelming, they had to stop collecting.
