Researchers who detected a fire that killed 41 animals in the Second Chance Wildlife Sanctuary in the east of Orange County on Monday, do not suspect that foul play caused the eruption, a spokeswoman for the Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis said on Friday.

"It is early in the investigation, but firefighters say they suspect no suspicious activity," said Alecia Collins, a spokeswoman for Patronis, who oversees the Bureau of Fire, Arson & Explosives Investigations.

The fire destroyed the two-story house of caretaker / owner Jim Bronzo, who said that he had been awakened by a screeching peacock. Neighbors who heard explosions called 911.

Lance Tompkins, spokesman for the government division for research and forensic services, said that the researchers believe that the fire originated in a storage area of ​​the structure.

Friends and proponents of supporters have thrown in to help Bronzo manage the surviving 320 animals.

A GoFundMe account that Bronzo benefited from, stood higher than $ 92,000 on Friday.

According to the crowd-funding site, "Jim was unable to have insurance on the property's contents and it's a total loss 38+ years, his life's work, please help him rebuild Jim lost everything personally, his clothes, photos, telephone. "

Many donations are less than $ 100 and were offered with condolences and encouraging messages.

"Jim is the real deal, an animal-friendly, die-hard vegan who only wants the best for the animals who are in his care," wrote a woman who gave $ 20, but was also willing to take care of Starbuck's lama farm De Land. "May God continue to bless you, Jim, and you will now become greater and better than ever."
