As the cold temperatures and snow move in, one North Georgia family is without a home. A pregnant mother of four children lost everything in a house fire Tuesday in Ringgold.
"I probably would have lost my daughter if it hadn't been for them," says Danny Beason, father of Tiffany Sims.
Danny Beason says thanks to the quick action of a neighbor and his son, his daughter, 24-year-old Tiffany Sims, is alive. They pulled her and her one-year-old daughter from her burning Ringgold home Tuesday afternoon.
"They were having problems with the water due to the cold weather and we were thinking it had something to do with the water heater," says Carol Barrett.
Carol Barrett is a close family friend and works at the Cloud Springs Lodge in Ringgold. While Tiffany does have insurance, she is taking donations to help Tiffany and her four children.
"We'll take anything that they can bring us to donate to help them out. They're starting over from scratch," she says.
Tiffany and her daughter were taken to the hospital for some bumps and bruises and are expected to be okay.
"They are great people. They would give the shirts of their backs to help you," says Barrett.
There are three boys ages 9-5-years-old and a 1-year-old girl.
Sizes needed are:
9-year-old boy - 8-10, shoes 2
7-year-old boy - 6, shoes 1
5-year-old boy - 5, shoes 13
1-year-old girl - 12 months, shoe 4
Mom (5 months pregnant) - 5 pants, medium shirt, shoes 7 1/2.
