The family was not home at the time and no one was injured. However, all of their belongings were destroyed in the fire and they did not have rental insurance. Bright Futures in Webb City is collecting clothing for the kids.
"When we find out that something like this has happened to one of our families, we want to make sure those basic needs are met as soon as possible so those kids can get back to a normal routine," states Jesse Degonia, W.C. Bright Futures.
