Family remembers fire victims

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Four days ago, Danielle Brown got a frantic call from her Mother. The home where her sister Valerie McBride and niece Chloe lived was on fire. After making it through a roadblock...she arrived on the scene.

Brown was certain her sister had escaped the fire. Authorities searched a nearby wooded area for Valerie and Chloe. But, there was no sign of them.

Searching the remains of the home, authorities found Valerie's body in the rubble. When they removed her...they found Chloe.  Leaving Brown in shock.

"I was just like, 'I want to be there. I wanted to...I want to hold her. Can I hold her?"

Brown says her sister was being the protective mother she always was. Shielding her daughter from the flames.

She says nothing will ever bring her beloved, baby sister and Chloe back to her.
