On Sunday, June 10, a fire destroyed a trailer in suburban West Palm Beach, killing one 7-year-old girl and sending her brother and sister to the intensive-care unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

A GoFundMe page, https://www.gofundme.com/lost-homechild-and-two-in-icu, has been established to help the family.


The fatal fire occurred in the  Holiday Ranch Mobile Home Park at 1375 S. Military Trail.

What little wasn’t destroyed in the fire was looted from the trailer that night. Someone also stole all the tools from the work van of the children’s father, Henry Rodriguez. His wife is Melissa Rodriguez.

His son Henry, 9; and daughter Kaly, 8; are being treated for severe burns at Jackson Memorial.

The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The GoFundMe page (https://www.gofundme.com/lost-homechild-and-two-in-icu) has a goal of $25,000. It has so far raised more than $10,000.
