The Westport Fire Department started a CrowdFunding page that will help out the surviving family.

“He’s such a sweet kid. You never know what’s going to happen and I don’t know how this started,” Caleb’s great grandfather Urban Medeiros told CBS Boston.

Deputy Fire Chief Allen N. Manley Jr., revealed to the public that a mother and 8 children died in a fire at the same house in November of 1952.

Our prayers are going out to the family of Caleb, who must be mourning the death of her son heavily. Please keep in mind that God will not forget your loss, and will not forget your pain. You WILL get to see Caleb again by the grace of God, AMEN!
