Baltimore mom House Fire
It happened Saturday, August 13, at their home on Druid Hill Avenue.
Graham says, 17-year-old Michael was frying chicken tenders when the fire broke out. "I had stepped away to the bathroom real quick," said Michael. "When I got back, there was smoke and fire coming from the pan."
Michael, who was home alone at the time, said he threw water on the grease fire, which made the blaze worse.
He called 911. No one was hurt.
Still, there's trouble for Toya, who had no renter's insurance. "I'm not blaming Michael," Graham said. "But I'm angry."
The ordeal has moved Graham to tears.
Hi Tameka! I think it is absolutely awesome that you are doing this for Toya. I don't mean to offend in any way but is there a way that those of us that don't know you guys personally and would like to donate can be 100% sure the money is going to Toya? With the amount of scams that are taking place on these sites I really hope you understand why I am asking. My prayers are with Toya and family. I will be happy to donate as long as we can some how verify. I'll check back in the next day or 2 to see if you have gotten a chance to respond.
I am so sorry this happen to you we will be donating ... I have to say as for the ignorant person Brian Stringer who said she needed to be a better parent yes her son did riot but you know if you would read the whole story like the rest of us did she went down to where he was and beat his ass for rioting to NOW to me that is a good parent that didnt want her son involved in the crap that was going on dont be judging someone unless your hands are clean other wise that glass house will crumble !!!!!!
You know what? What's the worst thing that can happen if you donate a little money to help this family? You might lose $50 to a scam? Big deal; you're getting ripped off by your own government and a zillion other industries each day. If that happens, that's not your bad, it's theirs. However, what if you donate a few bucks and help a family that is truly in need? Isn't that more important than a trip or two to Starbucks? People really disgust me, especially like that Brian Stringer clown. He looks and sounds like a piece of trash, and has nothing better to do than degrade people in need. Perhaps if he cleaned up his act and got a job he'd have less time on his hands to judge and degrade others.
I'm so sorry you have to go through such an ordeal. But even more sorry for the hateful words you have to hear from these un Christian like people who have never gone without in their lives. I know some people don't have an extra $50.00 per month for insurance. God forbid they have to walk in anothers shoes for a day. God didn't put us here to judge, but to lend a hand or a shoulder. Be strong and keep your faith.
Women (and men) like Tameka are the ONLY hope for America. Hillary won't do Anything. The Donald won't do Anything. The senate, the house, the governor and the mayor won't do a DAMN THING except tell you what you want to hear so that you will vote them back into their cushy job. THIS is the woman (and parents like her) that will save America.
Toya stay strong, and your family will continue to be in our prayers. And to the three morons on here trying to belittle and speak negative of this woman and her family, shame on you. You don't know jack about this family, grow a pair and stop talking trash behind a computer screen, none of you are bold enough to step foot in her neighborhood. If your not donating or and any positive words of encouragement for this family... Fudge off!!! Bottom line. Can we blame y'all mothers for raising douche bag sons??? Next time, tell her ass to SWALLOW, so we don't end up with more of y'all. I'm talking to you David Smith, Brian Stringer, and Cranksta Gayngsta.
People make nasty comments when there is no need fot it. Accidents happen and if you asked alot of people how to put out a fire their initial instinct would be put watee on it not realizing if its a grease fire you should throw salt on it. Hes a young kid and has probably learned a valuable lesson from this abouyt never walk away from the stove. I understandbprople also think renters vindurance is high. Its not. Its probasbly $100-$150 a year. I understand if you dont have the extra money fot it but people should at least get a quote to see if they can afford it because you see how devastating it can be if something happens. If you don't want to donate just move on. Thats your right. But dont leave a nbadty comment. Life is cruel enough without others adding to your misery
