Family mourns man killed in Warner Robins fire


ID=80228338A family left to pick up the pieces after a fire claims the life of a loved one. 34-year-old Terrance Files was killed in the fire.

"I'm at a loss for words right now, because this is just so unexpected. My brother was a loving person. He was quiet. He kept to himself, very outgoing. He loved me and my mom and our kids and my husband," says Terrance Files sister, Tiffany Duval.

According to the Warner Robins Fire Department, it happened around 7:30 a.m. at a home on Chuck Circle. They say Files' mother, Glenda Files, got home from work and saw the house full of smoke. That's when she called 911.

When firefighters arrived they were able to pull Files out from a broken window. But he was unconscious, even after C-P-R. Fire officials say they believe he fell asleep with food cooking on the stove. Files sister says it's the second time a fire tragedy has struck her siblings.

"I don't wish this on nobody. You know, this is a tragedy. It happened 20 years ago to me and my mom with my older brother. I never expected this to happen again," says Duval.

A neighbor says just yesterday Terrance Files was at her house asking about a painting job. She says he'd just moved from Ohio where he was also a painter. Right now, his family says they hope to find some peace.

"It's hard you know. I just want everybody to keep me and my mom and my family in your prayers," says Duval.

The Warner Robins Police Department says they do not suspect that the fire was suspicious. An autopsy has already been scheduled for Thursday.
