Two people are without a home after their house burned down in Ware County Friday morning.

The house and mobile home on Minnesota Ave. in Waycross was home to a 67 year-old mother and her 48 year-old son who is a disabled veteran. They were living in mobile home and building a house on the property.

The family was in St. Mary's and sometime around 10 A.M. a nearby neighbor noticed smoke and fire coming from the home. The neighbor contacted a relative of the family who then called the fire department. The house and the mobile home were totally destroyed along with everything inside.

The heat from the fire also damaged two vehicles parked outside.

The American Red Cross is assisting the family.
