Page to help Leland fire victim meets goal in under a day


LELAND, NC (WWAY) — A Brunswick County woman lost her home and two beloved dogs earlier this week.

In Tuesday’s storms, a home on Nightingale Court in the Waterford neighborhood burned to the ground. Fire officials suspect lightning sparked the blaze. The woman’s two dogs died in the fire.

Less than a day after a GoFundMe page was started, the page met its $15,000 goal. Even after the goal was met, donations continued to come in, so the goal was bumped to $20,000.

“We don’t know you, but want to let you know how sorry we are for your loss,” one donation read.

The Cape Fear Volunteer Center is also accepting donations.
