After losing his home in a fire on May 8, 2016, Jason Brustuen had one simple request to include in a new home at 106 W. 6th St. in Morris. Some may find his request a little silly, he said with a smile. He wanted a refrigerator with an ice and water apparatus on the door. "I got it," he said with a laugh. Brustuen can smile now after losing his home and most of his personal belongings inside it in that fire. Thankfully, he said, he was out exercising both of his dogs, Smedley and Rebel, on the day of the fire.

The couple has three grown children and has grandchildren. "We needed a little more space," Bruce said.
