A Texas Ranger and his family are without a home after it caught fire Tuesday morning.
The fire broke out in the 300 block of Kandus Cove just before noon. The home was engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived on scene.
The Valley Mills Fire Department, China Spring Fire Department, Waco Fire Department and Speegleville Fire Department were on scene. They were assisted by the McLennan County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Department of Public Safety.
No one was inside the home and the roof collapsed from the fire.
The State Fire Marshal's Office spent hours digging through what's left of the home on Wednesday. They're trying to find out where the fire started and what caused it.
At this point, the cause is still unknown. They're hoping to have an answer by next week.
In the meantime, dozens of neighbors are coming forward to help the Texas Ranger and his family.
A couple on their street is collecting donations such as diapers, clothing, toys and gift cards. They have stacks of these items sitting in their garage.
The couple said the entire neighborhood also pitched in to put them in a hotel for two nights. Neighbors have also offered them a place a stay on their property.
The church the family attends, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Waco, is also stepping up to help out. The church is accepting gift cards and other items for them.
"It's our responsibility as a church to take care of our members in any way that we can whether it's spiritually or physically," said Deaconess Suzanne Krahn. "In this case, of course, where they've lost everything and they have little ones and especially during Christmas time, it's our responsibility to take care of them."
The Oak Grove Baptist Church is doing their part to help the family as well. In a Facebook post, they asked for donations that can be dropped off at the church.
There is a benefit concert on Friday at Lakeside Tavern in Waco starting at 9 p.m. Donations will be accepted to help the family that lost their home in the fire.
Local artists Josh Garner, Clinton Bon Slaughter and more are playing to help raise funds.
