A family in the east needs your help this Christmas after they say fire destroyed their home Monday.
It happened around 2:00 P.M. Monday afternoon on Highway 50 near Pin Hook in Duplin County.
Jennifer Powell says her home caught fire after her son was playing with a space heater. She and her husband escaped the home with only their children and the clothes on their backs.
The Cape Fear Red Cross chapter in Wilmington has provided a place to stay until Saturday.
The Powell's say they will then stay with family until they can find a place to live.
Pastor Buster Price of the Church at Pin Hook in Wallace has offered to collect any donations for the family as they work through this troubling time.
