Single mom, family displaced from house fire getting help from YVC

YAKIMA, Wash.--A family that's been displaced by a house fire from Friday is getting help from Yakima Valley College (YVC).

The home of Marivy Vasquez and her four children caught fire late Friday night.

Everyone was able to escape, but a majority of the house is destroyed.

Vasquez, who works at YVC, says her co-workers are raising money to help them get back on their feet.

"We're grateful. We're not alone, we know that a lot of people care about us. Especially my co-workers, [I'm] thankful for the family that I have at YVC,” Vasquez said.

If you'd like to donate to the family a GoFundme page has been set up. Click here to be directed to that page.

Investigators are still working to determine what started the fire.
