Donors are using a GoFundMe page to collect money for a Navarro County family who lost their house in a fire Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Following a family fishing trip, James Grigar, II, Ashley Hanna and James' three children returned home for a fish fry, which led to a grease fire on the back porch.

By the time first responders could reach the family's Barry home, it was engulfed in flames.

“Our family is living day by day,” Grigar said. “The whole Mildred community has come together to make sure the kids have clothes, and supplies needed to go to school. Palmer Athletics donated as well.”

Household and personal items may be dropped off at Mildred Elementary or Grace Community Church in Corsicana.

“They say it takes a village, and our village is lifting us up y’all,” Hanna said. “There are too many to name here right now, but please know that we see and appreciate every single thing being done right now to help make our lives a little easier.”

A GoFundMe page named: Help James and Ashley with expenses from fire.
