TOWN OF WILSON N.Y. (WKBW) The powerful explosion that destroyed a family home and killed a young teenage girl, has generated a large response from the community.

Early Tuesday morning, the Johnson family home exploded killing 14-year old Sarah Johnson and injuring her parents and two siblings.

Jody Johnson and his 16-year old son, Nathan, were released from the Erie County Medical Center on Thursday.

However, Judy Johnson is still is fair condition, while her daughter, 16-year old, Katie, remains in critical condition with severe burns.

The tragedy has touched the hearts of many people resulting in many donations of clothing and money.

A community organized bake sale has already raised over $400 at the Nelson Family Restaurant and Bar in Wilson.

The owner of the Coffee Culture Cafe on Elmwood Avenue in Buffalo, Michael Meade, is giving 100% of this week's sales to the family.

There are also donation websites being set up on that organizers hope will raise enough money to allow the family to rebuild their home
