Family loses home in fire

A Floyd County family is safe after a fire destroyed their home in minutes.

The fire started around 5am Friday morning at a trailer on Turner Branch in Eastern.

Jesse and Anna Little had left the home earlier than usual for work at a nursing home.

Family members next door who saw the fire thought the parents and four year old daughter were inside and feared the worst.

“We tried to get in, but the smoke and flames were pouring out of the house at the time. You can replace items, but you can't replace family and friends,” Bill Marshall said.

Firefighters say the fire was accidental.

The Littles do not have insurance and some in the community are helping them with clothing and other items.
