OGDEN -- A retired police officer is reaching out to a family who lost a young girl in a tragic New Years Eve fire.

When her family's trailer caught fire in Clearfield Friday morning, 5-year-old Harleigh Wilson was unable to escape. The story caught the attention of retired Ogden police officer Tony Reyna.

"That morning I was able to call my grandson down the hallway, and I just thought about that little 5-year-old and had to do something," he said. "So I called the grandfather and offered to help him out."

Reyna had previously purchased several burial plots for his family. Now he's offering to donate a plot to the family for Harleigh's burial.

Reyna says the family is still in the process of planning the funeral, but said it seemed they would likely accept his offer.

*If you would like to donate to the family, there is an account set up at any Wells Fargo branch under the name Harleigh Wilson.
