A Chatham-Kent native, who works as a firefighter and lives near Houston, is himself trying to recover from the floods.
Kyle Parry has lost everything including his home and all of its contents, according to his sister-in-law, Natalie Parry.
A GoFundMe page that Natalie set up says Kyle and his fiancee Stephanie were supposed to be married on September 10, but due to the floods, they had to postpone the wedding.
Natalie says Kyle tried to save his home, but focused more on helping others instead. You can read about some of that here.

As of early Friday morning, the page had reached a little over $4,400 of its $6,500 goal.
