Local Charity Raises Money for Corlina Godfrey, 10-Year-Old Girl Killed in Weekend Fire
Catholic Charities CYO is tapping the community to help the victims who were displaced by a large blaze on Treasure Island, including the family of a 10-year-old girl who was killed in the fire.
According to press reports, the local nonprofit has already started collecting money to assist the family of 10-year-old Corlina Godfrey who was killed after being trapped inside her family's second-floor apartment. Firefighters attempted to save Godfrey, who was reportedly a student at John Muir Elementary School in Hayes Valley, but they fell through the floor when it collapsed.
The money raised will also go toward helping the 22 other people -- 11 kids and 11 adults -- who are now homeless.
Fire officials are still trying to determine how the fire, which caused more $325,000 in damages, started; they do believe it was accidental.
