Fire Survivors Ask for Help

A local woman and her grandson are asking for help rebuilding their lives.

This isn't the first time flames have devastated the Attaway family.

Back in 1993, Holly Attaway lost three of her grandsons in a trailer fire. Then last week flames exploded in her mobile home of Cherry Street. This time, she and her seven-year-old grandson Dylan got out unharmed.

Fire Department investigators say the blaze started in the exhaust fan over her stove in the kitchen. Before long the entire home was engulfed in flames.
