When Cassie Dawkins pulled up to her family's home Tuesday, and saw it was on fire, her first thought went to her wedding dress.

She was supposed to be married this week - inside the house. Her mother died more than a year ago, and being married in her childhood home was important to her.

"This is where she grew up," said Dawkins' aunt, Stephanie Stanford, "and she wanted to be close to her roots."

That wedding happened today. KWCH reporter Hannah Davis was there, and you can see her story here.
