ONE Yeppoon family is getting back on its feet after losing everything to a house fire last Thursday.

SMW Group has stepped in to help, and will let the family choose from nearly new furniture and white goods from former SMW rental properties.

The fire at Yeppoon comes just weeks after a fire ripped through mother-of-five Kayla Grant's Yeppoon rental property on August 9.

Workshop manager Scott Stevens said he was intending to donate goods to Ms Grant, but she had been overwhelmed with donations from the community.

As a lifetime Central Queensland resident with three children of his own, Mr Stevens said he empathised with the plight of these families. He said the second family was in dire need and he wanted to lend a helping hand.
