Heartbreaking tributes have been paid to a "gorgeous" two-year-old girl killed in a horror fire at a caravan she was staying at with her mother and three siblings.

Little Louisiana-Brook tragically died after the fire engulfed their holiday home at Sealands Caravan Park on Monday night.

Her mum Natasha Broadley and three of the lost toddler's siblings managed to escape the caravan as it was ignited with vicious flames.

The young girl's grandmother Donna Broadley has posted a series of snaps of her little granddaughter as she had the time of her life at the holiday park, MailOnline reports.

In a devastating Facebook post, she said: "Our hearts are broken as 'wee wee' was our baby of our family.

"Tash gave her everything, she was her right leg. Our hearts are broken.

"We as a family will be here for Tash and my grandchildren."

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help mum Natasha and her family after the tragedy.

Laurie Selfridge, a friend who started the fundraiser, said: "Louisiana-Brook was the most beautiful amazing little girl. She was a sweet angel.

"Natasha adored all her children but she was like Natasha's shadow.

"Their worlds have been torn apart in pure tragedy.

"It's soul-destroying, we all love Tasha and her children. We're a tight community in Newark."

She went on: "It's totally knocked all of us, but the love being shown is unreal."

Lincolnshire Police have said the blaze, which occurred at 10.30pm on Monday night, was currently 'unexplained'.

Pictures showed the caravan's base remained completely intact but the roof and walls were destroyed as the blaze took hold of the holiday home.

The mother and three children received urgent medical attention for smoke inhalation at Pilgrim Hospital, Boston.

About 50 people were evacuated from nearby caravans when the fire took hold, all of which were placed in emergency accommodation.

Leigh Sleafer, who was staying in a neighbouring caravan, said the deadly blaze had left her seven-year-old autistic son being sick.

Speaking to the MailOnline, she said: "I'm not really sure what happened as I was in the shower and had just settled my children down.

"My friend was outside, we saw what I thought was a heavy cloud of smoke and thought I heard kids shouting."

She continued: "Next thing I knew was my friend came in saying there was a caravan on fire.

"One of my children is autistic and was so distraught he was being sick so I had to get them all away from the fire and took them down the road to work out what we was going to do. We are now at home safe but very traumatised from it all."

She added: "I'm heartbroken for the family and for all that saw this… so tragic. Sleep tight little angel."

Emergency services currently say the cause of the fire is "unexplained" but are "determined to find answers for the family".
