Canton House Fire

An early morning fire in Canton destroys a family’s home. It happened around 5:45AM Saturday morning off Double Sides Drive, in the Beaverdam community. A woman and three children inside made it out safely but the home and the family’s car are a total loss. The Victim and family has nothing left except for the clothes they ran out in. She says this has been the most devastating experience of her life. Carrie Autry, fire victim, “just the intensity of the heat and not knowing if I was gonna get the kids out, just watching all my memories and my whole life and everything I’ve worked for burned up in a matter of seconds.” The cause of the fire is under investigation but officials say it does not appear to be suspicious. Local churches, including North Canton Baptist, are collecting donations for the family.
