MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

A Moultrie family said they appreciate their community's support after they lost everything in a house fire. 

The Whitlatch family's home went up in flames Thursday, destroying everything they had. 

Family member and friend Kane Young started a GoFundMe account to ask folks around south Georgia for donations.

As of Saturday night, they've raised over $7,000 to help the family get back on their feet. 

"Everybody is coming together as a community and they've been very appreciative and grateful for it," said Young. "So we are just trying to get everything back to normal as possible."
