Long County wildfires nearly out

LONG CO, GA (WTOC) - We've spent a week watching wildfires dwindle and now they're almost out for good.

The fires burning near Ludowici are now 95% contained, a far cry from the 4,000 acres that burned in the area.

The fire destroyed three homes, but only one with a family still living inside. They managed to survive, only grabbing their bible as they rushed away from danger. Now the community is helping them get back on their feet.

A contractor has even offered to rebuild the home for the family, but first they need to pay for the deed.

If you'd like to donate, you can make payments to any Wells Fargo location.
