Debbie Boothby and her 15-year-old son, Nate, both got burned on their faces trying to leave the building.
"We've lost everything," she said. "Our vehicle, all of our things that mean something to us - gone."
Boothby said she's just grateful they survived.
Fire investigators say the building did have working smoke detectors and that helped save lives. They are still trying to determine what caused the fire.
The American Red Cross is helping fire victims with temporary shelter at a local hotel and by providing food and clothing.
