A Graysville family is seeking help after they lost everything in a Friday Morning house fire.
A “Go Fund Me Page” has been set up to assist a Graysville family that lost their home, and all of their belongings in a fire that broke out Friday morning around 8:30am on Burnette Street.
The City of Graysville Fire Department responded. The first arriving firefighters on scene, reported that the flames had engulfed the entire home.
Firefighters deployed two, hand lines, making a defensive exterior attack, until they could eventually enter the home and extinguish the flames. Despite firefighters’ efforts the home was a total loss.
The family is being assisted, by the American Red Cross, as well as the “Go Fund Me Page” that was set up. The family has two children ages 6 and 2.
Any and all money raised, will go towards them for things they need, as well as help with a deposit to get into a new home
