Well heres my story about my night.. So im awake at 4 just on my phone doing things a regular teen would be doing at this time. I smelt something slightly burnt i didnt know what it was so i left it alone, then just seconds after it started to smell stronger so i got out of bed to smell what it was, i then open the door to see a little smoke so i rushed to peek over the railing and i seen a bright light on the walls. I then quickly ran to my moms room to wake her up while i was yelling "MOM MOM MOM WAKE UP THERES A FIRE" i ran downstairs n i see my dad running to the backyard to get snow n put it on the fire. As he ran back in to throw the snow on the fire i have been on the phone with 911 asking for a fire fighter to come asap. As i look back around the whole living room and kitchen is filled of black smoke i had to go on my knees to look through the house and at that time im in my slippers yelling for my dad, yelling at the top of my lungs. And seconds after he hears me yelling and he goes "yeah yeah im okay" good thing he ran through the basement hallway went upstairs and came around.. I then ask "where is everyone else" "theyre okay they ran to the lobby" my dad says. I go to check up on my family in the lobby and smoke is covering the hallways and no alarms yet to be heard so my mom had to ring the bells manually then the residents started to evacuate their homes. So i hear the sirens so im running to the other side of the townhouse complex trying to wave down the fire trucks to come around to the parking lot but it was too late as they jumped out the trucks. Im running back n forth to my parents my sister making sure theyre okay and thank God everyone is okay. So here i am now with absolutely nothing left from the house. Please spread the word and help us go back to our normal lives, we cannot even go to work as my work clothes n my parents n aunties work clothes are gone my parents car keys are gone everything you can imagine in your household is gone and you standing there watching everything burn to ash as i did this morning. So please spread the word and help us raise money to let us live our normal lives. Thank you, and God bless
