Family in Need-Fatal House Fire

It kills me to be writing this right now, but I received the most heartbreaking news at 4:35am. My family's house caught fire on10/14. My Aunt, Harriet Stacey, who was the rock of my entire family, has passed during this horrific accident, along with 2 beloved dogs, Max & Jack and cat, Frisky. My 16 year old brother, Ethan, escaped by jumping out of a 2nd story window and is currently in surgery; My stepfather Eddie is in the Trauma/Burn Unit with severe smoke inhalation due to his heroic effort to save the kids and Harriet. My 9 year old niece escaped unharmed. My 11 year old little sister, Jessi, was not home. It is unclear how the fire has started. This has left my family of 5 with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Any help at all would be extremely appreciated, as my family is in desperate need. Thank you so much
