The mother of the 19-year-old girl killed in a mobile home fire in Lompoc while trying to save her cat is pleading for the community's help on Craigslist.

Alicia van Wagenen died days after the January fire, after suffering smoke inhalation. Alicia's friend, 20-year-old Nicholas Perez, also died in the fire.

Alicia's mother says her daughter died trying to save a cat that was never found following the deadly blaze. But, she returns to the trailer on a daily basis hoping to find the missing cat.

Now, she is offering a reward to get the cat back.
