Community raises $70,000 for grieving parents whose children died in North Hero fire – Burlington Free Press

After just a day, a GoFundMe page for a grieving couple has exceeded its original goal. The two young children of first responders Mason and Desiree Maltais died in a fire Saturday morning. Police have confirmed that the two boys who died in a house fire in northwestern Vermont were 5-year-old Theodore Maltais and 11-1/2-month-old Nathaniel Maltais.

The cause of the fire was accidental. As of 8 a.m. Tuesday, Skylar Gallagher's GoFundMe for the Maltais family has raised $68,343, well over its original goal of $50,000 and its updated goal of $60,000. 797 people have donated to the fund.
