Help for fire victims, home burnt

Today, June 21, at around 11am eastern time, I got a call from my daughter screaming and crying that her home was on fire. She was at the doctor's office when she was called about it.
When I got to the scene, the home was fully engulfed. 3 different fire departments responded with water trucks, as there were no fire hydrants out where they lived beyond the city limits of Barnwell. The home is a total loss. My daughter resides there with her boyfriend and his grandfather. This was the grandfather's home for over 40 years. Nothing was saved, all memories, furnishings, and clothing were destroyed.  They are now basically homeless, living in a pull camper with no water because there is no electricity to power the well pump. They have power from a generator for now.
My daughter's boyfriend did get some smoke inhalation and was given oxygen at the scene. All donations to help them rebuild are very much appreciated!
