The Red Cross was able to put up Kenneth and Misty Bolyard and their three small children in a local Motel Six. But after four days, the family was on their own.
The Bolyards can't afford to stay at the motel much longer, and Mercy House says it can't help them either.
The fire at an apartment complex in Rockingham County displaced two families last Wednesday. A portable heater is to blame.
Now the Bolyards have nowhere to turn.
"I'm just worried about my kids. They want a home of their own. Living in a motel isn't doing them any good," said Misty of her three children, ages two, three and four.
Donations for the Bolyards can be sent to Misty's parents, Laura and Bobby Hall, at (540) 867-0420.
