GoFundMe account set up for apartment fire victim

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE -

A GoFundMe account has been set up for one of the four families that lost everything in an apartment fire Monday.  

It happened in the 200 block of Rials Drive. According to Alton Trahan, spokesman for the Lafayette Fire Department, a neighbor reported the fire after noticing smoke coming from an upstairs apartment.  

The neighbor knocked on the doors to alert residents, before the fire spread to the attic and roof of the complex.  The fire was brought under control within thirty minutes. All four apartments sustained heavy fire, smoke and/or water damage.

The fire originated in an upstairs apartment, said Trahan. The occupant of that apartment was asleep when the fire broke out and was awakened by the smell of smoke. Investigators say a burning candle ignited nearby combustible materials.

Deborah Dore' Couvillon set up a GoFundMe account and fire fund at Capital One Bank.
