GoFundMe set up for PG Co. police officer who lost home, possessions and 7 pets in a fire
WARRENTON, Va. (ABC7) —
A GoFundMe page has been set up for a Prince George's County police officer whose house burned down Wednesday in Warrenton, Virginia.
Officer Gloria Neeld and her elderly mother were able to make it out of their two-story home on Kirkland Drive but lost all their possessions and seven of their pets, according to police.
The Warrenton Volunteer Fire Department says their crews were called to the scene at around 12:30 p.m. Crews put the fire out but not before the back of the house and parts of the sides collapsed.
On Friday, Sgt. Joseph Bellino set up a GoFundMe page with a goal of raising $30,000 for Officer Neeld and her mother.
"I am confident our collective support will make a huge difference by helping Gloria to provide the necessary care for her mother while she works to rebuild her life," Bellino said in a statement.
The campaign has raised over $9,300 as of Saturday afternoon.
