House Fire Destroys Home

There was a fire in Woodbine early this morning that claimed the lives of 2, Anthony Green (Age 6) & his Aunt, Myra Butler (52).
The family did not have insurance, nor do they have the money to have 2 very unexpected funerals.  Any donations will help get this family back on their feet. 

I know there are so many people right now without homes, power, and water, after Hurricane Irma. Please donate if you can, and if you are not able, please share this page to help this family.

A house fire early this morning claimed the lives of a woman and a young boy near Woodbine. A second woman escaped the blaze.

Two adjoining structures on Ben Butler Lane were fully engulfed in flames when Camden County Fire Rescue arrived at 6:10 a.m., according to a press release from the Camden County Sheriff's Office. Kingsland and St. Marys firefighters also responded to help extinguish the fire.

Anthony Green, 6, and his aunt Myra Bonita Butler, 52, died in the fire. Green’s grandmother, Marcia Butler, was able to get out of the house. First responders notified the Red Cross to provide aid if needed.

The house had been without power since Sunday.

Both structures are a complete loss. The Georgia fire marshal’s office will take the lead in investigating the fire with assistance from CCSO.
