Blake and Amelia Smith’s home burned down Sunday morning in Eunice.

Fire officials say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Amelia was awakened by the popping noise of the fire, and managed to rescue her children and her pets, a friend tells KATC. Blake was working offshore at the time.

The family, which includes a 7-year-old daughter, Olivia, and a 4-year-old son, Michael, lost everything, their friend says. Michael has had three open heart surgeries.

Their friend has set up a GoFundMe for them. If you’d like to help, click here .
