A Decatur County family of four is without a home after fire consumed their trailer.

It happened at  198 Earl Hester Rd in Climax Saturday afternoon, but thankfully no one was hurt.

Most of their possessions are now unrecognizable piles of ash. Less than 48-hours after the flames friends and family were salvaging what scrap metal the could and tearing down the shell of their former home.

With no insurance and staying with family, they're asking the community for help.

"We can use clothes, I have a 16 and 17 year-old they really need some clothes right now, we can use anything," said Rosann Thornton, Fire Victim.

They had no insurance and are turning the Red Cross for some help. You can assist the family by calling Rosann Thornton at (229) 726-1979.
