RANKIN COUNTY, Miss. – A fire broke out late Monday night in Brandon in the Castlewoods neighborhood.

The fire happened Monday night on Apple Blossom Drive.

Tony Sims said if it wasn’t for his neighbor he could be dealing with much more than losing his home.

He said his neighbor woke him up last night saying there was a fire in the garage. Sims said the fire started spreading fast to the second floor.

He said they’ve lost everything but he, his wife and two children managed to escape. Sims said his two cats managed to make it out as well, but there is a pet turtle on the loose.

If you would like to help the family, you can donate at Community Bank to the Sims Benefit Fund.
