LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - A Lawton family is asking for help after their home was destroyed in a fire Sunday afternoon. It happened on Northwest 52nd Street and Northwest Meadow Brook Drive.

The family didn’t want to go on camera but homeowner Brandon Edwards said it is tough on him and his three kids.Edwards said the smoke detectors went off yesterday around 2:30. They were able to escape without any injuries, but they watched everything they had go up into flames.

Shirts for Men; Large Pants for young men 28-30; Girls shirts; Medium/Large Pants for girl, size 10/12 for little girl; Long Pants Size 10/12 for Women; Shoes: Size 7 Young Boy, Size 1 Youth, Size 6/7 for kids, Size 9 for Women.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
