 KSDK-- Friends of Tegan Ledbetter, 10, who was killed in a South St. Louis house fire early Saturday are organizing a clothing drive for surviving family members.

The family's home on Keokuk was destroyed in the fire, and they lost everything.

Family friend Joshua Hart says, "During this period of grief and recovery, they're not able to look to their own need. So we're doing the best we can to make sure that when they're ready to restart their life we can help make sure they have the material and goods they need to get that life restarted."

Clothing sizes are listed below:

Lawrence "Bud" McCall, father: pants-48/32; shirt-44/36 or 3X; shoes-12.

Dawn McCall-Ledbetter, mother: women's 26-28 or 3X; shoes 11W.

Crystal Ledbetter, 13, sister: womens 7-8 or girls 14-16; shoes-11.
