Fire consumes Vickery Road home

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, July 26, 2000

Units from the Greenville, BS&W, Liberty and Brushey Creek fire departments responded to a fully-involved house fire just after 4 p.m. Monday.

Upon arrival, they found that a 12 ft. by 50 ft. mobile home located at 2564 Vickery Road was engulfed with fire from all sides.

Jennifer and Tommy Mayberry were able to get their three children out of the house just minutes before it erupted into flames.

While they did this, their grandfather was moving the dogs in the yard to a safe location away from the building.

The Mayberrys had seen smoke coming out of the wall from the electrical fuse box, and quickly gathered up their children and exited the building, and then called E-911 from a neighbor's home.

"We've lost everything: clothes, food, furniture, but luckily no one was hurt and we all got out," Jennifer Mayberry said.

The family does not have any insurance, and has 3 small children, a boy age 4, a girl 3, and another girl 10 months old.

The younger 2 are both in diapers.

Until they can find another home, the Mayberrys will have to stay across the street at Dorothy Mayberry's home.

Donations of clothing can be made in the following sizes: baby girl-12 months; 3 year old girl-3T; 4 year old boy-4T; adult female-16 pants, large shirts; adult male-32 pants, large shirts.

Donations can be left either at Dorothy Mayberry's home or at churches in the Vickery Road and Sandcutt communities.
