A Gofundme account has been set up to benefit a Magnolia couple whose house was destroyed following a mud slide on the hill behind their home on Perkins Lane, Friday.

James and Didi Fritts sustained minor injuries, but both of their dogs perished when their house slid off its foundation and collapsed on itself during the mud slide. Jamee Dunn, who organized the gofundme to benefit her friends, said the Frittses are staying with friends while they look for a new place to live.

According to the gofundme description, Didi was reaching for the front door handle when the top story of their house crashed down. She crawled to safety, but James Fritts was trapped under a refrigerator, which fell on his legs.

Firefighters extricated James Fritts and also put out a small fire that broke out, presumably when the house collapsed.

Dunn said in the gofundme description that the Frittses lost almost all of their belongings in a matter of minutes.

“If you see the house, the first floor where they were has been flattened, and they cannot believe they are alive,” according to the gofundme.

According to the gofundme, the Frittses had lived in the house for 10 years, but insuring it for mud slide damage was not an option. The fundraiser will help the couple pay off their home loan and also replace their belongings.

As of Monday afternoon, almost $100,000 had been donated for the couple.
