A local mom in Diamond Valley (formerly Turner Valley) didn't have a great start to February as her house caught fire last Thursday, Feb. 2.

The homeowner Rebecca is a single mom who lost two pets in the blaze while another is in emergency care.

One of her three sons, Keegan Donaldson who lives in Calgary, started a GoFundMe page while her mom gets back on her feet.

The house wasn't completely lost to the fire, however, it will take eight to nine months to rebuild.

The GoFundMe page has already raised just over $7,000 in its first four days.
