All that is left of the McLemore's Christmas is a burned down home.
Smoke-filled toys in the front yard, and a place they have called home for years still cooling off from a Friday afternoon disaster.
They also called the nearby fire station for help - the Lizana Fire and Rescue.
Even though the station is only a few minutes away, the first firefighter arrived 45 minutes later.
"We got a fire station right up here that nobody mans and they're paid firemen that works that fire station. It's a holiday. They're off. Probably could have saved my house if it had been somebody at that fire station," said McLemore.
He says the first truck to arrive was a volunteer firefighter from the Saucier Fire Department.
It took a while for him to drive from his home and get a fire truck out to the McLemores.
But McLemore says he wouldn't have had to drive that far, had there been someone right around the corner.
We could not get in touch with Chief George Mixon of the Lizana Fire and Rescue.
Luckily, no one was injured in the fire, but the McLemore family lost everything, so if you would like to help, please call 228-831-0392.
