It was a peaceful Sunday night, everything seemed to be in order as my sister was preparing herself to go to bed. Within moments her sleepy dogs quickly became disturbed as they began to run around the house as if someone or something was there. Kayla, now frustrated and confused as to why her dogs became so anxious, heard terrifying screams from outside the house. She ran up the stairs with her dogs following behind her and opened the door to see her neighbor holding a ladder to rescue the residents that lived upstairs. She watched the horror on their face and helplessness in their voice as they struggled to crawl out the window. It took a moment for her to gather her thoughts before she realized her home was on fire. The damage is devastating to say the least. A lot of her belongings were destroyed in the fire by smoke and water damage. Everything from furniture, clothes, electronics and other necessities are now gone. It is not the material things that are bothersome but it is the pictures, the memories, and other treasures that is the most heartbreaking. It is hard to believe that in a few moments everything can change. We would like to thank the Red Cross and Salvation Army for the temporary shelter we are receiving as well as the community for all the support and prayers. However we are still in need of new or used things as well as any other donations that will help us as we find a home.
