Family loses home in accidental fire

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - WTOC first showed you firefighters working to keep a fire from restarting at a home off Largo Drive Monday.

Tuesday, the family of four who lived there still needs your help to get their lives back together. Investigators think the home's gas water heater caused the blaze.

The family still can't believe what happened.

"It just didn't hit me. I was just like, this can't be happening right now. You know, because you hear about it all the time but you never in a million years think that it would actually be you and your family. So of course it's heartbreaking for us, what we're doing is trying to stay strong," said Artecia Arthur.

The Red Cross is helping, but the family still needs gift cards, food and clothes.
