A house fund has been set up for Jacklyn Sharpe Clutter and Todd Clutter at an area bank after the house the couple was getting ready to move into was destroyed by a fire.
The Clutters were forced to move from their initial home after flooding, which occurred during June’s devastating flood, caused mold issues. They were preparing to move into a home on Greenbrier Avenue in Ronceverte when it caught fire during a construction job.
The house fund has been set up at the Ronceverte BB&T under the name of Jacklyn Sharp Clutter and Todd Clutter House Fund.
