Fayetteville Family Thankful To Be Alive After House Fire

Posted November 19, 2000 6:00 a.m. EST

— A Fayetteville family of six will be homeless this Thanksgiving.

Gloria Donaldson says she saw flames Sunday night and pushed her children out of their Alan Street mobile home. They lost everything.

Donaldson says she is worried about how to take care of her children, including her nine-year-old son. He has played with fire before, and fire officials say he used a lighter to start this one.

"I hope he can get help. I want him to get help," Donaldson says. "I am not going to hope, I really want him to get help."
