The local Red Cross is assisting a Lamar County family of five who lost everything in a fire at their home on CR 43200 over the weekend. Firefighters from Powderly, Faught, Chicota, Lamar Point and Hopewell battled the blaze for about 3 hours.  The family made it out of the fire safely, but the family pets perished in the blaze.  It’s believed  that an electric heater may have caused the fire.
