Omaha North High School is helping out one of its own students after a house fire last month injured her and her mother and destroyed the family home.

Saturday, the student council is holding a pancake feed, auction and item drive to help Amanda Bohm and her mother, Janet Franks-Bohm, who were badly burned in a house fire.

Carl Bohm, the father of Amanda Bohm and the husband of Janet Franks-Bohm, started the fire, authorities have said.

Carl Bohm remains in the hospital.

Amanda Bohm sustained second-degree burns. Janet Franks-Bohm remains in the hospital recovering from third-degree burns that covered more than 60 percent of her body.

All proceeds from the fundraiser and items collected will be donated to Amanda Bohm, a senior at North, and her mother.

The Pancake Man will be in the school’s Viking Center from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Prices will be $5 for students and children and $8 for adults. First responders in uniform will receive a free breakfast.

Students also have been collecting household items. Items still needed are: a dresser, bedside table, futon mattress, trash can, rug, shelving unit, size 8½ shoes, towels, storage bins, desk chairs and other household goods. The entire list can be found here.
