Family of four loses home, belongings in West Point arson

WEST POINT, Ga - An arson case in a West Point community took the home and belongings of a single mother and her three children.

The woman, whose name News Three has chosen not to reveal, lived in the duplex apartment housing on Avenue K. 

Family friend, Jamanski Flournoy says the mother has recently suffered from health issues. "She's been through some things. I don't know the exact details, but she's gone through chemo therapy and things like that, so when this happened, the first thing I thought about is, you know, the struggles and things she's already been through, and how she lost everything, like that, overnight."

The community is now asking for help for the mother and her three children whose ages range from 5 and under.

If you would like to help, you're asked to contact Tisha Jones via Facebook messenger or by phone at 706-589-1172. You can also take donations to 506 Pine St. West Point, GA 31833.

Neighbors say the fire started late at night earlier in the week. West Point Police have since charged 44-year-old Wanda Buckner with arson, along with a slew of other charges.
