A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help a Charlie Lake family afford fixing their home after coming home to it not only being broken into, but flooded.

Robin Westergaard and her family went away to Edmonton for a medical trip, and a friend house-sitting checked on the residence and told them their water pipe was pouring into the rest of the house.

An estimate from Windsor Plywood says the damage would cost $3,267.09 to fix.

Fort St. John RCMP says this happened during the night of October 8th, and the person who broke in did not seem to steal anything – only unattached a water pipe in the bathroom that caused the home to flood.

Cpl. Jodi Shelkie said there was nothing at the scene to help find evidence or identify a suspect, and asks the public to call RCMP or Crimestoppers if they have any more information.

The campaign can be found here.
