Fundraising Campaign Set Up To Help Family Of Woman Who Died In House Fire On Friday

KAWARTHA LAKES-A fundraising campaign has been set up to help a family who lost a loved one and their home in a fire on Friday

The Ontario Fire Marshal’s (OFM)Office has been called in to investigate the fire on Pigeon Creek Road in Janetville.

The call came in at approximately 11:15 am. Crews from Ops, Pontypool, Bethany,  Janetville and Omemee responded to the blaze according to the fire department.

“On Friday, May 27th, a tragic fire struck my Grandmother’s, Aunt Wendy’s and Uncle Bob’s house. My Grandmother was able to get out and Uncle Bob was not home at the time.” says Laura Woodward who set up a Go Fund Me campaign.  “Unfortunately, our Aunt Wendy did not make it out as well as their animals. They have been left with nothing, and at this time, we do not know if anything can be salvaged.”

The fire has been deemed not suspicious. The Ontario Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause.
