A fundraising account set up for a rural Fort Pierre family who lost three family members and their home in an explosion yesterday (May 24, 2023) has raised over $150-thousand in less than 12 hours.


As of 6:30 this morning, a GoFundMe page set up for the Trevor and Kelsey Hupp family had a balance of more than $153-thousand.


According to the fundraising site, Kelsey and Trevor were at work when the explosion occurred at their home along Highway 1806 in the Antelope Creek area southeast of Fort Pierre. The blast killed their infant daughter, Harper, and both of Trevor’s parents, Bill and LaDonna. Their sons Myles (5) and Royce (3) were airlifted to a burn unit in Minnesota. The blast also completely leveled their home.


Stanley County Sheriff Brad Rathbun said yesterday that the cause of the explosion is unknown, but at this point foul play is not suspected.
