Go Fund Me Created for House Fire Victim


Efforts are underway to help a local Illinois woman after a massive fire destroyed her house and claimed the lives of her pets.

A fire destroyed a house on East Clover Street in Hutsonville Saturday night.

It’s believed the fire started in the kitchen where two spaces heaters were located.

The home, built in 1901, is now a complete loss.

Four dogs inside the home also died.

The community has been quick to lend a helping hand.

Someone set up a Go Fund Me page for the homeowner Pam Lawhead.

Community members are also planning some fundraising events, such as a pool tournament.

Details for that are still being finalized.
