AURORA, Colo. -- On Wednesday, John Vargas lost his wife during a house fire on East Seventh Avenue in Aurora.

His son is clinging to life at University of Colorado Hospital and Vargas did not have homeowners insurance.

"I'd like to thank everyone for their concerns and their prayers at this time," Vargas said.

Many of those thanks were directed at neighbor Judy Bronstetter, who set up a GoFundMe account to assist the family.

" I just wanted them to feel supported and to know there are members of the community that are praying for them," Bronstetter said.
