    This sorry is wrong at the beginning! Harkime Geddings (last name was misspelled in this story.) It was never said that Harkime woke up for a snack at 5:30am. Our 6 year old son was our Blessing he is the one who woke up coughing and woke me ( Mary ) up to use the restroom and saying his throat hurt and ask for something to drink. So I told him I would get it and that’s when I found the fire and had to wake Harkime up! His/Our youngest son and his safety was the first thing on Harkime’s minds!!!! Our oldest son was the one who wasn’t home. Please get the facts correct before printing a story!!!! In Harkime’s and in My eye’s our 6 year old son is the HERO!!!! He saved our lives!!!! We love both of our boys more than life it’s self and that is all that matters!!!!!!

    Who makes a snack at 5:30am? When you were told that a Philly steak and fries plate and chicken tenders was eaten around 1:30am. Please get the facts right before printing a story. Stop making up your own story
