A family whose house burned, during which the father also suffered burns while saving his son and sister from the flames, were gifted a new house Saturday.
Ronald Warren Williamson III suffered third-degree burns in the November fire, according to WTVG.
The family received enough votes through a real estate company contest which gave a house to the winner.
"We're just very fortunate for everybody in the community for the way they've all come together," mother Stacey Kennedy told WTVG. "It's just amazing."
