KAWARTHA LAKES-A family who lost everything in a house fire near Bobcaygeon last week has nothing but their car and the clothes on their back according to the Go Fund Me campaign.
Kawartha Lakes Fire and Rescue were called to the scene on Fairbairn Road just before 11pm on Tuesday November 24th. Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue Platoon Chief, Bill Lockwood told Kawartha 411 News that the home was fully involved by the time crews arrived. Crews were on scene until approximately 4:30 am this morning.
Lockwood says the fire appears to have started in a shed attached to the house. The Home is a complete loss. The two adults and three kids who lived in the rented home were not harmed according to Lockwood. The family dogs made it out safely but a pet pig did not.
Lockwood says the fire is not suspicious.
Family members told Kawartha 411 the woman and her kids are staying in a hotel but only for two more days. After that they aren’t sure where they will live.
The kids, two aged 14 and one 13 year old, are all in need of winter coats. (Mens large, mens medium and a women’s small) One boy needs winter boots, men’s size 10. Mom is a women’s size mediums and her fiancé is a mens large. Clean clothing donations can be dropped off at the Holiday Inn in Peterborough with the family, who is staying there at the moment.
