Family Loses Everything but Faith in House Fire

SEPTEMBER 26, 2005 -- A Riegelwood family that reportedly cashed in their savings to help hurricane victims now needs some help of their own.

Shirley and Irvin Dixon came home from church Sunday to find everything they own destroyed in a fire.

Fire officials believe faulty electrical wiring started the blaze. Mr. Dixon is on dialysis and is disabled.

Chris Rhodes is a family friend and one of the volunteer firefighters who helped put out the flames. He says the Dixon's have helped strangers hundreds of miles away.

Now they need their community's help. If you would like to help, contact Mr. Rhodes at (910)655-1413
