Family of four displaced from home by Sunday fire

SoVaNow.com / February 21, 2013
A Sunday afternoon fire has left a South Boston woman and her three young children homeless.

Firefighters found the singlewide mobile home located at 719 Lincoln Drive fully engulfed in flames upon their arrival shortly after 4:30 p.m. on February 17.

According to Dwight Spangler of the South Boston Fire Department, the cause of the blaze has been listed as undetermined since no one was at home at the time of the fire to report any possible cause.

Shauna Ferrell and her children were offered a place to stay temporarily until they can find a place to live, said Ginger Weaver with the American Red Cross yesterday.

The community, Weaver said, has turned out to help Ferrell and her children, one of them a six month old infant. The Red Cross, Weaver said, is helping with the immediate needs of the family — with clothing and food, but she noted that finding a place to live has been the biggest problem for the family.

The Dan River Baptist Church has also turned out to help the family, she added.

In addition to the 17 firefighters and three trucks from the South Boston Fire Department, the Halifax Volunteer Fire Department sent ten men with two trucks to assist in fighting the blaze.
