Single mom, family displaced from house fire getting help from YVC

​KIMA TV

YAKIMA, Wash.--A family that's been displaced by a house fire from Friday is getting help from Yakima Valley College (YVC).

The home of Marivy Vasquez and her four children caught fire late Friday night.

Everyone was able to escape, but a majority of the house is destroyed.

Vasquez, who works at YVC, says her co-workers are raising money to help them get back on their feet.

"We're grateful. We're not alone, we know that a lot of people care about us. Especially my co-workers, [I'm] thankful for the family that I have at YVC,” Vasquez said.

If you'd like to donate to the family a GoFundme page has been set up. Click here to be directed to that page.

Investigators are still working to determine what started the fire.​

Walla Walla downs Yaks

​Yakima Herald Republic

WALLA WALLA — On paper, at least, Yakima Valley’s men’s game with Walla Walla on Wednesday was a matter of simple math.

The Yaks made as many field goals as WWCC, and even outrebounded the Warriors.

But the NWAC fifth-ranked Warriors made 10 more 3-pointers en route to a 77-65 East Region victory.

The loss was YVC’s seventh straight, dropping the Yaks to 2-8 in the East and 8-16 overall. Walla Walla improved to 9-3 and 18-6.

Justin Hill scored 20 points for YVC, Modesta Britten had 14 and Jalil Walker led the Yaks’ 45-39 advantage on the glass with 11.

But while Yakima Valley was 3 of 10 from 3-point range, WWCC was 13 for 37 and saw all five of its starters score in double figures.

Gabe Porter led the Warriors with 22 points while Landon Radliff 14 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

YVC travels to Blue Mountain on Monday before hosting Treasure Valley next Wednesday night.

YAKIMA VALLEY — White 2-7 0-0 5, Webb 2-10 0-0 5, Modesta Britten 6-12 2-2 14, Justin Hill 7-13 6-8 20, Walker 3-7 0-0 7, Hodge 2-3 1-1 5, Ford 1-4 1-2 3, Carter 1-2 0-0 2, Gaitor 2-5 0-0 4. Totals 26-63 10-13 65.
