Staff report

An online fundraising effort has begun for a Pomfret sugarhouse that was destroyed by a fire Thursday.

A campaign on the crowdfunding website, gofundme.com, is asking for $5,000 to help start the rebuilding process for Grandpas Sugarhouse, a Pomfret business owned by resident Duane Harrington. A fire broke out at the sugarhouse Thursday afternoon and took out tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment owned by Harrington.

A message with the campaign says the business was not insured.

Update 3:15 p.m.: In less than eight hours, about $1,200 was raised and the organizers raised the goal to $5,000.

Donate to the campaign here.
