Sydney Jane Williams, who said she is a cousin, put out a call for supplies for the survivors on social media.

Williams said the family needs baby diapers size 1+, Huggies pull-ups size 3/4T, wipes, Similac Alamentum formula and gift cards for food, clothes and other baby supplies.

Williams also shared a GoFundMe, which has since raised more than $12,000 to help the remaining family members.

“We woke up this morning to devastating news that our family lost everything, including loved ones, in a tragic and unimaginable house fire this morning,” Williams wrote. “We have started this GoFundMe as a way for them to help pick up the pieces and get started building their life again.”
