SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Neighbors in Normal Heights are coming together to help a couple whose home was badly damaged during a fire earlier this week. 

Much of George and Cathie Gezzer's home was destroyed by a fast moving fire that broke out early Wednesday morning. 

George is Navy veteran who served 20 years. The home has been in Cathie's family since she was born. 

The couple didn't have insurance and doesn't have any other place to go right now. They've been trying to stay in what's left but there's no electricity, water or gas to the property. 

Neighbors have started bringing by donations of all kinds of necessities to help. The Normal Heights United Methodist Church is planning to collect money on Saturday night at its Movie in the Park event. Local restaurants have also donated food.
