March 06, 2009

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A fund to benefit the family of a 4-year-old Martinsburg boy who died in a house fire Monday has been established at the Martinsburg offices of Bank of Charles Town (BCT) at 9738 Tuscarora Pike, a bank official confirmed Friday.

The Joey Wyatt McCarary Care Fund was established after family members traveled from Florida to help with funeral arrangements Friday, according to the boy's grandmother.

McCarary's mother, Rhonda McCarary, is receiving treatment at Washington (D.C.) Hospital Center for severe burns to about 60 percent of her body from the fire, which was ruled by investigators to be accidental.

A hospital spokesperson said Friday that McCarary was in critical condition.
