Mother, family of 4 displaced by house fire

Renetta Rendell Renetta Rendell
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A mother and her three children, all under the age of five, escaped their burning home in south Albany Thursday night.

Renetta Randel was preparing dinner for her children before flames consumed her rented home on the 4800 block of Mustang Lane.

"Next thing I know, the fire had broken out before I knew it," Rendel said. "I don't know. All I had time to do was grab my three children, no shoes, no nothing just them."

Battalion Chief Kelly Harcrow says the place is a total loss.

"It's pretty much gutted," Harcrow said. "It's not going to be habitable, we contacted the Red Cross, they will put them up for a day or two before they can make some other arrangements."

Rendell is worried about what to do next. After the Red Cross emergency shelter help runs out, she says she has no place to go with her three young children.

"They are 3, 4 and 1, I'm praying that God, you know," she said. "Because we lost everything, you know, its hard you know being a single parent trying to make it ... Pampers, clothes, shoes, just."

Rendell was renting the home and has no renter's insurance.
