A GoFundMe page set up for the family of four who were killed over the weekend in a Lexington fire has raised more than $33,000.
Jeffrey K. Brown, 54, Nancy Brown, 59, Cassie Brown, 8, and Wiley Brown, 8, all died of smoke inhalation and burns they suffered during a house fire on Laurel Hill Road early Saturday morning.
One daughter of Jeffrey and Nancy Brown was uninjured, according to the GoFundMe post. Her name is Emma.
