WORTH CO., GA (WALB) -

A Worth County family say they have much to be thankful for even after a fire destroyed their home and all their belongings.

Flames destroyed all of Troy Walker's home on Ruben Lane it around 1:30 Wednesday morning.

Walker says material things can be replaced and he's just grateful his wife and kids made it out just in time.

"None of that compares when we think about our kids, so we're extremely blessed and fortunate in that manner," said Troy Walker, Survivor.

Firefighters haven't determined the cause of the fire.

The Walkers think it was caused by an electrical short.

The Walker family has an account set up at the Members United Credit Union, if you would like to make a donation.
