DAVIN, W.Va. — A house fire Wednesday evening in the Man area has left family of six homeless. The house was a total loss.

Owner Donald Clark said they were gone to a birthday party and got a call that their house was on fire. The old coal camp home, formerly owned by late Ed Garrett, is located on Huff Creek across from the Davin Post Office.

Carter said they believed the fire started in a small room to the right of the house.

“They had to come back several times during the night to put the fire out,” Carter said. “The last time they said they used 30,000 gallons of water. They finally got the fire completely out at around 1 a.m. Thursday morning”

Logan County Fire Dept. 200 answered the call.

The family includes four adults and two children and clothing would be highly appreciated. Sizes needed include men’s shirts: size large and extra large; men’s pants: 30×32 and 40; men’s shoes: 9 1/2 and 12. Women’s clothing — shirts size 3X; pants size 24 and size 10 shoes; boys sizes needed are shirts: 7/8 and 8 Husky; pants size 7 regular and 8 Husky, shoes size 1 and size 10.
