BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) - On Wednesday, the Bluffton Township Fire District presented a $19,000 to 11-year-old Jessica Bello and her family.

The money was raised during the 10th annual Boston Butt Fundraiser. Bello suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a disease that affects the spinal cord and causes muscle wasting. She was also recently diagnosed with Epilepsy.

Bello is confined to a wheel chair and requires around-the-clock care, and the money they received today is going to help pay for her medical costs.

"It's very humbling, the fact that so many people that we don't know actually came together to help us with our needs - we're just very grateful," brother Jonathan said.

This is the most money raised in the Boston Butt Fundraiser in it's 10 year history.

November 10, 2014 – At approximately 1:30pm the Bluffton Township Fire District and Beaufort County EMS were dispatched to 25 Ferebee Court for a reported Structure Fire. First units on scene reported a working fire in a single family dwelling. Engine 320’s crew attempted an aggressive attack into the 2nd Division.

The heat continued to build and the visibility remained the same so command pulled all companies out of the building and prepared for a defensive attack. Once exterior operations were started and an elevated master stream was used the fire was slowly brought under control. Crews remained on scene for approximately 4 hours overhauling and extinguishing hot spots. The Bluffton Twp Fire Dist Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
