A witness reportedly made an effort to reach the victims and save them, as stated by the Deputy Fire Chief Faye Craigmile. “They were screaming for help,” said Anna Dutton. “My brothers and cousins tried to help them, but the fire went out of control.” Joshua Ward, age 33, Tia Nabours, age 43, and Christopher James, age 41, her boyfriend, were all taken from this world. The official report from the police department states that they perished from inhaling smoke.
The identity of the fourth victim has not yet been determined. The investigators came to the conclusion that the fire started by mistake. The victims were using the stove to heat their home when an accident occurred and something caught fire on the stove. A GoFundMe campaign was established by Nabours’ daughter in order to contribute toward the cost of burial arrangements.
