HINGHAM (WBZNewsRadio) - It was supposed to be their forever home, but the Cutter Family's new home in Hingham caught fire just three weeks after they bought it, reducing the home to rubble.

"We were just pinching ourselves, it checked every box. We were so happy to be here. Every time we pulled into the driveway, it was all smiles." Haley Cutter said. She had only spent three nights in the home when everything changed.

The Hingham community quickly stepped up, setting up a GoFundMe page to help them, but Haley and her husband Patrick decided to do something a little different with the funds. The family decided to start their own fund, called The Cut Fire Fund, which will support first responders as well as other families that have been impacted by fire.

"Life can change very quickly, if we can help others it's helping our family grow." She told WBZ's Chris Fama.

The Cut Fund is already making a difference in local lives.

"We're currently working with four families in East Boston. Just yesterday I dropped off care packages for them, suitcases, backpacks, diaper bags filled with tons of comfort items. I hope that we can just give these children a little bit of a hope our community provided us." Haley said.
