Joyce Hughes, who owns the property, said she is working to relocate the family to one of her other properties.

“We’ve never had anything else like this happen,” Hughes said.

With everything inside destroyed, the family now needs all the help they can get replacing household items from beds to pots and pans to clothing.

Lasseter wears a medium shirt and size 8 shoes. Bell also wears a medium shirt, size 7 shoes and size 7 pants.

Any supplies can be dropped off at Kelly’s Food Mart at 22507 U.S. Highway 231 in Troy. The store is open 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
