Family Home Destroyed by Arson

My brother, sister-inlaw and 10 month old niece came home from a family day out to only find out their family home was set ablaze. The cause of the fire was a simple act of stupidness & mistaken identity as someone set fire to my brothers van, mistaking it for another van that this person was paid to set fire to for an insurance claim. The van was parked right outside their living room window. The van rolled into the house causing an explosion and setting the house on fire with their family dog inside. We are so thankful my brother, his wife and their 10 month old baby were not home at the time, as they could of been seriously injured or worse. Thank goodness Alfie (the family dog) was rescued before it was to late. Due to one persons wrongful act a family has not only lost their home but all their valuables which cannot be replaced. They are victims of an arson attack.

Adding more to their stressful situation their home insurance was expired, this is why we are asking if everyone can please donate in anyway you can to help get them back on their feet, as they have lost everything and they will have to purchase all new items, new clothes, furniture, and all the costs for rebuilding a new house as well as taking time off work and losing a pay Cheque. They are using all their savings to do this and unfortunately money was also burnt in the fire. Please donate in anyway you can, even one pound goes a long way!


**** UPDATE *****
Investigation for the persons responsible for this is currently underway.
