The family of a 15-year-old boy who died in a fire at their home in Lyles last weeksaid they're struggling to move on.

Tristan Waychoff, who was autistic, died in the fire.

After escaping himself, Tristan's dad Joseph went back inside the home four times to find him, before the excruciating walk outside empty-handed.

Even though Tristan was autistic, his sister Brianna said in many ways he was just a typical 15-year-old boy.
