The Evans City Fire Department will collect items to help a family whose trailer home was destroyed by fire Friday.

The department will take the donations at 124 North Jackson St., from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The fire broke out at 10:15 a.m. at the Pioneer Ave., home of Drew and Cindy Pearce.

Firefighters reported no injuries, though initially, neighbors feared that Cindy Pearce and a child were trapped inside, because her vehicle was parked outside.

"We all really thought she was in there, and we couldn't get an answer," said Jo Amerson, a postal carrier, who arrived when the fire started.

Cindy Pearce was determined to be at a doctor's appointment.

Amerson heard a dog barking and broke a back door. The dog was not conscious and she performed CPR to revive it.

"Everybody is fine, unfortunately they lost everything," Evans City Fire Chief Mark Adomaitis said.

Trooper Luke Nelson, the state fire marshal, was trying to determine the cause.

"The way these mobile homes are built, they go up very fast," he said.
