The Crook County Sheriff’s Office said the fire started just before 6:00 a.m. at a home in Juniper Acres off of SE Cascade Way and SE Reservoir Road. The house was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.
Most of the family made it out safely, but the two children did not escape.
One of the fundraisers is to help the children’s mother and their two siblings.
“They no longer have a home and will need help with funds for a roof over their head, both temporarily and in the near future, something more permanent,” organizer Manda Lynne wrote. “They will also need help with funeral expenses for their two precious little ones who perished.”
The GoFundMe seeks to raise $10,000. It was halfway to that goal late Monday morning.
