SAN ANTONIO- It's been nearly one week since a deadly fire claimed the lives of a mom and her one -year old twin boys. Their home on Pearsall Road caught fire and spread to four neighboring homes Monday afternoon. It’s still not known what started the fire.
With no insurance and the sudden deaths of 31- year old Roxanne Moreno Ordonez and her one year old twin sons Daniel and Orlin, several hundred people showed up to make donations and purchase barbeque plates at Country Gold Ballroom.
Family and friends organized the event a few miles down the road from where the deadly fire happened. On that tragic day the extreme high winds added to the intensity of the fire leaving remaining family members without a home.
In just a matter of days, donations to help with this fundraiser started to pour in from baked goods, dozens of pounds of meat, side dishes, and cooks donating their time.
“The community has just been amazing from that night on Tuesday doing a candle light vigil,” explained the victim’s cousin Debbie Jo Fonseca.
Funeral services and the burials and not been made since there is no money for three burials or to replace the home that Roxanne lived in with her parents, husband and two other children.
An account has been set up to help with funeral expenses at Wells Fargo Bank under the name of Evangelina Chairess, Roxanne’s mom.
