The Lincoln County Fire Marshal's office and the SBI are investigating a fire that claimed the life of a 12-year-old Iron Station boy.

Reece Thomas Haskin, a student at East Lincoln Middle School, was home alone Saturday night (May 22nd) when a fire destroyed his home at 2265 Bynum Estates Road, off Long Circle between Iron Station and Alexis.

Alexis Fire Department answered the call just after 8 PM and were assisted by Boger City and East Lincoln firefighters.  When they arrived on the scene, they were told that someone may be inside the home, so they conducted a search and took the boy from the home, but he was badly burned.  Reece was transported to the Burn Center at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem where he passed Monday.

Friends have established two charitable accounts to help pay for funeral expenses.  Heather Oder created a GoFundMe account which has raised about $3,000 so far and a cousin, Kayla Celeste Helms created a Facebook Fundraiser which had raised about $5,600 as of Wednesday morning.  

Fire Marshal Rodney Emmett said the fire started in the living room area of the home, but said further details would be forthcoming when the investigation is completed.
