Tyler, TX (KETK) —
A relief fund has been set up for an East Texas family who was displaced as a result of an early morning fire.
Authorities tell KETK, firefighters were called out to the 15,000 block of Farm to Market Road 14 around 5:00 a.m.
Frances Galindo, her two teenage daughters, and a two-year-old boy all managed to escape the fire unharmed. However, their family dog was lost in the blaze and the house was destroyed. The fire has since been extinguished. Officials tell KETK there were no smoke detectors in the house and the family did not have insurance. Red Cross has been called in to assist the family in their time of need.
You can also help the Galindo family by visiting any Southside Bank branch or United Heritage Credit Union on Broadway and Houston. The relief fund has been set up under the name "Frances Galindo."
Together, we can help this family rebuild.
At the time, the cause of the fire is unknown.
