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.
