A pair of B.C. park officers are looking to get back on their feet after losing it all.

Michael and Tiffany were taken to hospital after an Eveley Recreation Site fire in the early hours of Wednesday, July 6, both of whom were sleeping when the flames sparked, destroying their travel trailer, a truck and a car.

Their two dogs and cat did not make it out alive.

Both lost their phones and identification in the blaze as well.

A GoFundMe has been created for the pair, raising close to $5,000 by Thursday afternoon, half of the $10,000 goal.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. North Westside Fire Rescue was able to knock down the fire, which had also spread to neighbouring trees.
