TIFTON, GA (WALB) – A Tifton family is trying to put their lives back together after a fire claimed nearly everything they owned.

Martin Segovia's showed us where a Thursday night fire devoured his mobile home on Whiddon Mill Road.

After 16-years of building a life in the U.S., the Mexican immigrant and his two children must now start over.

He tried to put the fire out with a hose, but it was too late, the fire spread and was fully involved when firefighters arrived.

Only part of the kitchen wall still stands amidst their charred possession.

"All those memories, I've got my daddy's pictures, my Myra her baby pictures when she was two weeks old, and my boy," said Martin Segovia, Fire Victim.

An electrical problem near the washing machine could have caused the fire.

The Red Cross did help the family find a temporary place to stay.

A car at the home was totaled in the fire; Segovia's truck was spared from the flames.
