Starting Over After House Fire

At 5am on July 6th Michelle Murphys dog Nucki woke her up. Thinking something was happening at her back door, she went to investigate not realizing she would open it to the back deck being engulfed in flames. Michelle rushed to grab Nucki and escape the fire before it reached inside of her apartment. Michelle lost all of their belongings in the fire. 

Michelle grew up in Ventnor her whole life and is still a local resident to the shore. She’s a loving dog mom to an amazingly well behaved pit bull. 40447926_1562437456460225_r.jpeg40447926_1562437524995483_r.jpeg
They had just recently moved in a little under a year ago. Too make things worse she had just been recently t-boned in her vehicle a couple months ago.
