Tuesday night, a house fire destroyed everything in a home that 11 recovering addicts share in Hagerstown, Md. 

These men have been on the path to recovery and have already suffered the devastation that results from substance abuse. They lost everything in the fire. One man simply asked, "can someone please get me a pair of shoes?"

The community has started a GoFundMe page to help these men get some of the basics: toiletries, shoes, socks, underwear and basic clothing needs. 

Jamie Costello has the story of these men are staying on the road to recovery Wednesday on ABC2 News at 11.
