It was only a matter of days before Dearing Country Farms in rural Danvers was back in operation and owner Brad Dearing was back teaching at University High in Normal after an overnight fire Sept. 16 destroyed the home he built for his family in rural Danvers nearly 15 years ago.

An online fundraising effort has been launched for a rural McLean County farming family which lost their home in a fire early Sunday.
