A community is mourning the loss of an 8 year-old girl after a house fire in Vernon. The blaze broke out at a home on Route 5 Sunday afternoon. The mother and 5 other children made it out of the home but the youngest, 8 year-old Zoey died in the fire.

The family has set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help.

My brother Dave and his family lost everything in a house fire. They also lost their youngest daughter Zoey. It is a devastating time for the whole family and we ask if you could please donate whatever you can to help them.

Donations can also be dropped off at the Vernon Public Library or at Star Performance Dance Center on 4464 Peterboro Street in Vernon where 2 of the girls dance.

The investigation into the fire is continuing this morning.
