Crowdfunding campaign works to raise money for twins killed in fire

PAHOKEE, FL (WFLX) - The Pahokee community is working to help the mother who lost her twin girls in a fire last Friday.

By Monday morning, a crowdfunding campaign had met almost half its goal.

A friend of the twins' mother, Susan Robertson, started the online fund. It will pay for funeral costs and other expenses for her daughters, Catherine and Cassandra Colon.

The 14-year-old sisters were students at Pahokee Middle School. They died from smoke inhalation after their home caught fire early Friday.
