A family with three young children and another child on the way has been left homeless following a house fire on the afternoon of Sunday, December 1, 2019.

Kingston Fire & Rescue responded to the 3000 block of Highway 2, near Grass Creek Park, after receiving reports of a fully engulfed house. Heavy smoke and large flames could be seen shooting out from the roof of the home on firefighters’ arrival.

Fortunately, none of the residents were home at the time of the fire and there were no injuries, but the family lost most of their possessions in the blaze.

As a result, a request is being put out to the community for assistance in providing Krystiannah Summers and Jack Moon, along with their kids Dom, 8, Nathaniel, 4, and Kaedence, 2, with some emergency clothing and other necessities. The family shared the home with Evelyn Ley, Moon’s mother.

The children are in need of clothing that is appropriate for their respective ages. They are also in need of size 5 diapers for the 2-year-old. Summers, who is expecting a fourth child in April, is in need of women’s XL and large maternity clothing, while Moon requires men’s XL shirts and size 36 pants.

As the family is still making alternative housing arrangements, items may be dropped off at the Kingstonist office at 275 Queen Street from Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. A GoFundMe page has also been created at

UPDATE (Monday, Dec. 2, 2019): Thanks to the overwhelming support of the community, it appears most clothing needs are now covered for the family. For those wanting to help the family further, donations of gift cards and Visa cards are still be accepted, as are donations through the GoFundMe campaign above.
