Family staying strong after losing home in fire

BIG SPRING, TX (KWES) - The Parsons family still can't believe they got the call saying their house was on fire on Tuesday afternoon in Big Spring.

Their son, Damon, was the only one home at the time in the 2400 block of Cheyenne Drive and was sleeping when a neighbor pulled him out.

The Parsons family has four kids all under the age of 18.

They moved five years ago from Fort Worth to Big Spring and the family said they were buying telescopes and other items to eventually move to Alaska.

Several family members, friends and coworkers have offered them help finding a place to spend the night.

Thankfully, no one was hurt in the fire.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation by officials.
