It’s unclear how the fire started, but sources close to Cocoa said she believes a candle may have fallen into some clothes in the house. 

Cocoa Brown tried to put out the fire with an extinguisher, but she couldn’t control the blaze and immediately focused on getting her son and pets out of the house and to safety.

Help Cocoa Rebuild

Sadly, Cocoa lost everything and now her friends and family have launched a GoFundMe to help her and her son, Phoenix, after the tragic fire. 

The campaign reads, in part: 

Cocoa Brown has brought laughter and light to countless lives with her talent and humor.
