At least two online fundraisers have been created to support families affected by a fire that destroyed three homes in Canton this week.
Six homes and "multiple cars" were damaged in a June 2 fire in the Hidden Creek neighborhood, though no one was injured, according to Cherokee Fire and Emergency Services.
The Saint-Surin family experienced "a massive amount of damage to their home, cars and all of their belongings, including all of their memorabilia," according to fundraiser organizer Destiny Campbell.
"Victims of fire face a tremendous amount of stress from a mental, emotional and financial aspect and I'm hoping we can help alleviate some of the stress they will face in these next few months," she wrote on a GoFundMe page.
Saturday morning, the page had raised over $6,000 of a $20,000 goal.

Diego and Rachel Velardez, and their three sons, lost everything in the fire, according to A. Sheldon, who set up a fundraiser on their behalf.
"Anyone that knows Rachel, knows just how caring, thoughtful, and giving she is," Sheldon wrote on the GoFundMe page.
Saturday, the page had surpassed its $10,000 goal and raised over $16,000.
