A devastating fire took out a family home on Walton Lane early Friday morning.

The fire put one family member in the Baton Rouge Burn Center and left the rest of the family without food, clothes or shelter. Their extended family has stepped in to help, but the family is in desperate need of clothes and money. The Dad is with the family while the Mom is at the burn center with her injured child.

A GoFundMe has been set up for the family and 100% of the funds will go to the family. There is also an immediate need for clothing. We’ve provided a list below.

Vicksburg and Warren County always come together in times like these and we are so proud of our community’s endless ability to love and help their neighbor.
