A Pittsville family outside of Gretna is grateful for the community's support following the fire that destroyed their home. Four people escaped safely but the family dog lost its life. The home belonged to Monique Baboun who was at work. Her children were home with a sitter.
She and her children are staying with her sister. The community has been donating money and collecting clothes/household.
A GoFundMe page has been set up and Gretna Middle School has a donation box.
Gretna fire officials say the cause of the fire is still unknown.
