LaGrange Bureau

LaGRANGE, Ga. (WRBL) – An eight and 12 year old have both died in an early morning house fire in LaGrange. The fire started around 3:40 a.m.

Jason Holmes says his wife Lynette bravely went back into the home to attempt to save her boys.

“When the fire crews finally got here they had to pull Lynette and the kids out and I couldn’t see them.” Jason Holmes said.

Holmes said he can’t imagine his life without his kids; William was 12 and his brother Desmond was 8.

“William liked his internet he liked his video games, he liked going out playing with the dogs, and Desmond he was non-verbal autistic, so it was a lot different raising him. “He said.

The children’s mother is in the hospital for treatment of injuries.

The fire is still under investigation, and no further details are available at this time.

A GoFundMe has been created to cover expenses for the family during this trying time.
