Family loses everything in mobile home fire

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A Worth County woman who lost everything in a mobile home fire needs help.

Lynn Stokes and her grandson got out of the home safely on Sunday.

She was cooking french fries at her home in Orchard Hill Estates off Highway 112 near Sylvester.

Stokes said she turned away for a second, heard a loud pop, and saw her entire stove engulfed in flames.

She got her grandson and dog out, but five puppies died in the fire.

"My grandson lost his school clothes, and we didn't have any shoes on when we left," said Stokes. We just got out of the house with what we had on our backs and that's it."

If you want to help the family, call 229-206-1012.
