Video of the Fire
In the middle of the night of March 17th, Alma and Jasmin were awakened by a panicked family member. As smoke filled the rooms the adults rushed to save the children inside and thankfully everyone made it out.
The fire started in the apartment below Alma and Jasmin and burned 15 out of 16 units; their unit taking the greatest direct hit. 8 firefighters worked 5 hours to die down the fire from midnight to 5am.
While all of the occupants are safe with minor injuries, absolutely nothing in Alma and Jasmin’s apartment could be saved.
Everything, from their toothbrushes to first wedding anniversary memorabilia and important documents, were destroyed in the fire.
We are calling on friends and family to help Alma and Jasmin rebuild from nothing. Any contribution you can give is deeply appreciated.
