A tragic house fire in southeast Texas resulted in the death of a mother, Giovanna Cabrera, and her 1-year-old son, Gabriel Cabrera, as she attempted to rescue him from the flames.

The fire, which took place in the early morning hours, also claimed the lives of the mother and son.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Cabrera’s sister recounted how Giovanna rescued her two other children before reentering the home to save the baby.

“She got the two kids, the 9-year-old and the 6-year-old and then she was going back through for the baby,” Giselle Bueno said. “It’s still surreal….I feel like she’s just somewhere else. Like I’m going to see her later on.”

A fundraiser has been set up to support the family with funeral expenses and to assist Cabrera’s surviving children and parents, who lost everything in the fire.

The community has rallied, with the fundraiser receiving over $18,000 in donations.

“Please extend a prayer today for a local family,” Houston Mayor John Whitmire wrote.

“We are working to make sure this family has the support they need in their time of grief. I thank our first responders for their work assisting with the investigation.”
