Inara and Rob Taylor were stopping through Katherine on their way back to the Latrobe Valley, Victoria after four months on the road, when their caravan burst into flames.

“We were actually starting to head home when we stopped into Woolworths to get some water, we were gone for about 10 or 15 minutes and as we got back there was smoke pouring out of our van,” Mrs Taylor said.

“I was in disbelief, luckily we were unable to unhook our car from the van, so thank you to the men who helped my husband unhitch the car.”

 

Mr and Mrs Taylor said they have been overwhelmed by the care and concern shown by the Katherine community.

“A lady I had never spoken to before came and gave me a 50 dollar voucher, two other people came and pushed 50 dollars into my hands and another man 20,” Mrs Taylor said.

“When people started coming up to me and putting money in my hands I just bawled, I could bawl now.
