Donalsonville - With about one more hour of work, William Jones would have been able to get insurance on his home.

"We was working on it that day," says Jones. "We would have had insurance put on it that next day and that night it burned."

Taking everything but the clothing on their backs from Jones and his family. His wife, Georgia, says she's not sure where they'll go from here.

"I'm just waiting to see what doors open for us," says Georgia, "because we don't know what we're going to do."

But they haven't been alone trying to rebuild their lives. Jones' career as an EMT has led many people to donate to the family, even their son, Josh, has new toys.

Jones says, "I had a lady call last night and said, 'I remember you came out and helped me with my father. Let me help you.' It feels good to know I've helped the community and now the community is actually helping me."

Helping them to rebuild their lives. The Thomas County EMS station is taking donations for the Jones'. If you would like to donate, call 229-225-4113
