Victoria firefighters were called to a home at 1251 Rudlin St. about 10:30 p.m. A man and his three children escaped a fire Tuesday night that destroyed their home and all their possessions.

The displaced family is staying with relatives and receiving help from the Victoria evacuee assistance as everything inside the house was destroyed. The occupants also did not have insurance.

Knight said neighbours passed a hat as a collection for the family, amassing $600 in just a few minutes.
