Courtesy KTVUCatholic Charities CYO is seeking donations for Cornlina Godfrey's family after the 10-year-old girl was killed in a Treasure Island fire over the weekend.

A local nonprofit is raising money to help the family of a 10-year-old girl who died in a house fire on Treasure Island early Saturday.

Catholic Charities CYO is gathering donations for the family of Corlina Godfrey, who was trapped in the two-story home at 1223 Mariner Drive during the blaze, which was reported about 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The organization also is raising money for others affected by the fire. American Red Cross spokeswoman Liz Shemaria said 22 people — 11 adults and 11 children — were displaced and are currently being housed at hotels in Oakland.

People wishing to donate can visit www.cccyo.org.

Two firefighters were hurt while trying to rescue Godfrey from the second floor of the burning building. Both were treated for minor injuries, according to fire officials.

Investigators believe the fire was accidental but have not determined what sparked it, said Lt. Mindy Talmadge, a Fire Department spokeswoman.

The blaze caused about $225,000 in damage to the unit where it started and destroyed about $30,000 worth of property inside, Talmadge said.

Two adjacent units sustained more than $100,000 in damage, she said.
