3-year-old Survivor of House Fire Returns Home

J'lon Williams, the 3-year-old who survived a fatal fire that killed his three siblings is on his way back to Macon. 

"He just has one little scar on his forehead," says mother Colethia Williams in a phone interview. 

She says she plans to attend the vigil at 7 p.m Wednesday for her three children who died in a house fire early Sunday morning. 

Williams says she was asleep in bed but then left the house the morning of the fire. She would not explain to 13WMAZ where she went or why.

She did say she was out of the house "no more than 20-30 minutes." 

While she was out, Williams received a phone call saying her house was on fire. 

When she arrived on scene, firefighters were carrying out her four children. Three children died that night, all under the age of 10.

There has been an outpouring of support from the community.

To honor the memories of the three children, the neighborhood is hosting a candlelight vigil tonight at 7 p.m.

Williams is also taking cash donations for a funeral and burial.

To make donations, contact Bentley Funeral Home at 2714 Montpelier Ave.
