More help Thursday for a firefighter who lost his home to a fire.

The fire burned Richmond firefighter Derek Hahn's Madison County home last month.

Thursday, Firehouse Subs in Richmond presented the Hahn family with $2,000.

Half came from a fundraiser at the restaurant last week, the other half was a donation from the restaurant's founders.

Hahn says he's had a lot of support from fellow first responders and the community.

"It's a real good brotherhood we have and our friends have helped out a lot. We have people. Just yesterday someone cam by and wanted to give us money to help out," said Derek Hahn, who lost his home in a fire.

The Hahn's say they're staying in a one bedroom apartment until their home is repaired.
