Cordele Police and state fire marshals are investigating a house fire that displaced a family of four.

Dorothy Glasco says she doesn't know how her home on 8th Avenue caught fire Friday morning. Glasco says she was out running errands when it started. Her granddaughter and two great grandchildren, who are four and one-years-old all lived there. Her brother says he misses having the family live next door.

"I miss them, because he's a handful,” said Willie Davis, Dorothy Glasco's Brother. “He likes to follow me, so I miss him being behind me all of the time."

The family lost everything in the fire and are staying with family and friends. You can make donations to Dorothy Glasco and her family by contacting her at 229-287-9983.
