Taunton — A week after a devastating fire left a Norton family homeless, there has been an outpouring of support from the community, including a Taunton pet groomer.

For fire victim Jessica LaCasse, part of trying get life back to normal was getting the family cat and dog cleaned, literally washing away the smoky odor that served as a constant reminder of the destructive blaze.

“It’s been very traumatic for us, but it’s been traumatic for them, also,” she said.
