PHOTO: Most local musicians will tell you the talent community in Tucson is tight-knit. So, when a country music fan’s home went up in flames last week, a group of performers got together to help her rise from the wreckage. On Sunday night, 10 performers took to the stage at Saguaro Corners. The “Country for a Cause” benefit was held in support of Kimberly Othic and her two teenage boys who lost everything in a house fire. On Monday, January 6th, Othic says she had just returned home from a dinner out with her family when she noticed something wasn’t right. “My boyfriend felt the ceiling and it was hot and we smelled a really weird thing; it was like burning plastic,” she said. Othic says an electrical fire had started in the ceiling.
