Apartment Fire Relocation Assistance

Good evening. My name is Matthew Clark. I am 38 years old and a single father of a loving 14 year old son. We reside in Dover, NH where I have lived for over 7 years now. After spending 11+ years in the Naval Submarine force, I decided to stay here in NH as a job offer came i couldn't refuse, so been here ever since. Things have been hard for myself and son after the divorce over 9 years ago, but we prevail with bumps along the way financially and having one incoming supporting self and son. My life took a drastic turn for the worse on the afternoon of Saturday, June 2nd. I was eating lunch on the couch while my son and his friend came in from the room and sat next to me. A noise was heard coming from kitchen. Son turned around and noticed flames coming from back deck. He yelled fire and I immediately turned and noticed the whole back deck was engulfed in flames. Within seconds, an explosion occurred and shattered the windows. Black, billowing smoke ensued kitchen. We then grabbed the dog and got ourselves out the door and called 911. We were unable to head to third floor of apartment for our 2 cats. Luckily, with all the fire department support, our 2 cats were rescued. Tears of joy ensued us all. Post fire walkthrough revealed severe smoke damage and half fire damage on main living floor. Almost all of our possessions were lost, hardly anything was salvageable. Things can be replaced, glad we are safe. We are currently living in a hotel just wondering, what happened, what's next for us, where will we live. It is now where we have to start completely over, all personal items and living items, and a new place to allow pets. I would appreciate any support that can be provided. My son and I greatly appreciate anything you can donate. Thank you for hearing a short life story of our misfortune. God bless you all. Matt Clark, AGE 38 Wesley Clark. AGE 14
