CECIL LAKE, B.C. – A Cecil Lake family of five watched their house burn down on Christmas Eve.

A local family has lost almost everything after a fire near Cecil Lake on Christmas Eve.  According to eyewitnesses and reports to Energeticcity.ca, the family left the house Thursday afternoon to watch a movie and their Christmas tree fell over causing the fire.  The home has been completely destroyed.

Members of our community have already started to help the family.

The Lakeview Inn and Suites is collecting donations.  The family has three kids, two boys and a little girl.

Here is some more information about each member of the family.

Son – 9 – bigger boy that fits men’s small or youth XL

Son – 7 – is in size 7/8

Girl 3 –  fits 3/4/5

Dad is tall and thin

Mom is size 16 or ladies XL

Lakeview is also accepting toys for the kids for Christmas morning and the staff at the hotel are willing to wrap the toys. You can also donate towels, linens and gift cards.

Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Fort St. John and Save-on-Foods have already provided the initial donations of winter gear and food for the two dogs.  The Salvation Army is also working to put together a hamper.

You can drop off donations at Lakeview Inns and Suites until noon on Christmas Day.  Everything will be delivered to the family in the afternoon on December 25.

We will post more information as it becomes available.  If you have any more details to share about fundraising for the family, email news@moosefm.ca
