One official was with Magee when she got the call that her house was in flames. She said the family is in need of everything.

“We’ve been taking up donations, money, clothes, food, hygiene,” said Capt. Tenesha Martin. “Anything anyone is willing to donate. Everything. Only thing they had was the clothes they had on.
