On April 13th, a fire in Grand Marais burned down three family owned businesses.  But following the tragedy, a bit of good news as neighbors rise up to help. 

Musician Timothy Haus performed a virtual concert Thursday night at Odyssey Resorts' East Bay Suites. The fundraiser was live on Odyssey's Facebook page and supports a GoFundMe page for the businesses. 

So far, they have raised over $53,000 for the Picnic and Pine Gift Shop, the Crooked Spoon Café, and White Pine North Gift Shop.
