Moscow Mills, MO (KSDK) -- A bank account has been established and donations are being accepted for a Lincoln County family that lost everything in a house fire earlier this week.

Richard and Alyce Lantrip awoke Wednesday evening around 10 p.m. to the sound of their wood burning stove, which they thought had been put out. A fire had started and spread quickly, engulfing an entire wall of their home.

The Lantrips scrambled to grab Richard's 13-year-old son and evacuate the house.

Firefighters from Lincoln County and Wentzville managed to extinguish the blaze, but the home was a total loss. The Lantrips survived with only the clothes they were wearing.

Friends and family had given the Lantrips some clothes to wear, and the couple is staying at a hotel in Troy for the time being thanks to donations from the local fire department.

Unfortunately, the Lantrips did not have insurance on their home and their immediate future remains muddled.

In addition to the picking up the tab for the hotel room, the Troy Fire Department, located at 700 Cherry Street, will be accepting hard donations and ensures the family receives any donations.

Clothing sizes for the family are:

Ricky Jr. - shirt: small/medium men's size
pants: 28/30
shoes: 9½

Alyce - shirt: small/medium
pants: 5-7
shoes: 8

Richard - shirt: large
pants: 32/34
shoes: 10½
