UPDATE: Hawkinsville Family Survives Fire

Two children are still in the hospital after a Hawkinsville house fire last week.

Brother and sister, Doug and Kimberly Howard are still being treated at the burn center in Augusta. The Howard’s siblings, Sammy Colburn and Joseph Ferry are back in school at Hawkinsville High School and want just one thing for Christmas.

Ferry says, “I’m not worried about Christmas this year, I just want Doug and Kimberly to get out okay.”

The boys returned to school two days ago and were overwhelmed with the amount of household items the school had collected in just a few days. Hawkinsville High School Principal Rosemary Wright, says “We have enough items to furnish a house.”

13-year-old Kimberly is still in a coma. Doug hopes to be released by next week.
