Officials say William’s father, Michael Powers, jumped from a window.  He was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for him and his family.

Authorities haven’t determined whether the home had functioning smoke alarms.

There’s no word yet on what caused the fire.
