GRADY COUNTY, Okla. – It’s tough for Katie Crosley to come back to her home of a dozen years.

A large, fast-moving fire swept through the Grady County home early Sunday morning.

Crosley said, “It was up to the top of the trees, 30-or 40-foot tall flames.”

Katie and her newborn son, Jace, were asleep on the couch.

That’s when their blind, deaf, 3-legged Dachshund began barking until the family woke up and escaped the impending danger.

Crosley said, “We’re thankful for him.”

Katie had no time to grab anything.

An electrical fire has forced this family to start all over. 

The fire victim told us, “It’s going to be tough. I know a lot of people are going to help.”

Folks from Oklahoma and beyond are calling and writing KFOR to help. 

The family has received money, clothing and endless baby supplies for Jace.

Katie said, “We’ve been overwhelmed with support from friends and people we don’t even know; just totally brought me to tears, the people of Oklahoma and how generous they are.”

The path ahead won’t be easy but Katie is thankful it’s a journey she won’t be walking alone.
