Kiley (Gibby) and Family’s Tragic House Fire

Kiley, her husband  Kevin and her three step-boys  just moved into a townhouse building approximately three months age and they just went through a tragic house fire that completely destroyed everything last Thursday 9/24/20.  5 other families in their townhouse building were also either permanently or temporarily displaced.
Kiley Keller, Kevin Keller, Christopher Webster, and Ashton Keller all  made it out with only the clothes on their backs. The other son was away at grandparents. Zena, their Great Dane puppy, also escaped. Neighbors were able to catch her as she fled and they returned her to them.  Mikey, their cat, unfortunately passed from smoke inhalation as he hid in a closet, but thankfully didn’t suffer any burns. Every member of the 5 other households, including their pets, made it out unharmed.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but the area in which it started has several potential culprits (electrical, gas, dryer vents, smokers’ butt disposal, etc) and the fire investigators are sorting through it all in an attempt to determine which was the culprit; but even they are baffled. All they have been able to tell them is:
(1) It started in this area, but were aren’t sure exactly how;
(2) The architectural design of this building made it a disaster waiting to happen; and
(3) It spread as quickly as it did because there was a shared attic and no firewalls, which should never have passed code inspection.

The only things in their house that survived the fire were 4 boxes containing sentimental items, their birth certificates and marriage licenses, the dress Kiley wore when she got married, and a University of South Carolina golf shirt. Other than that, they quite literally lost everything

With that all said.... Any help is appreciated and if you can help to spread this message we would be forever grateful! 

For those of you that know the Gibby family you know they will do ANYTHING for anyone and they love to help others. Please let’s do what we can to help them in their time of need!! 

Thanks are due to countless people, and thanks to God for their protection.
