A family of 9 is rebuilding their lives after their home in Wyoming County went up in flames just 4 days before Christmas.

Community members have rallied together and offered them food, clothes, furniture and money. Mother Peggy Fury is grateful for the everyone's support so far.

"It means the world to me. I sat down there and felt so lost and I didn't know how to take care of my kids and I thought we'd be homeless. I really thank God for the people who have reached out to us, they've really touched my heart," Fury said.

The family now needs furniture and kitchenware. The Fury's are accepting donations at 922 Poplar Street Mullens, WV 25802.
