Campfire causes us to lose it ALL

We have been deciding for months whether this move from PA to CA would be a good move or not. We had so many pros and cons. We also knew sometimes you have to sacrifice things to get better things. We moved from Pennsylvania to California, by vehicle, on November 4 2018. I started work Nov. 5 2018. I loved my work. My family and I started to get pretty comfy thinking things were really going well... Until me, my older sister and her husband walked into work and got the most devastating phone call... Theres a fire behind the house and in front of the house by the gate. Our job was 2 hours from the house and we left work and hurried back to our children. Everyone's service on our phones were poor and we were worried SICK! We finally get in contact with them a hour in the drive and find out everyone got out within 10 minutes of realizing everything was on fire. My oldest niece and her friend drove my sisters kids and all pets out in 1 vehicle. My fiance and our 2 younger girls ages 3 and 5 got out in a second vehicle. We later found out the house was up in flames around 7:45am, only 20 minutes after my family made it out. They drove thru black smoke snd flames til they were safe. And with that being said, we lost every single thing we ever had and only have our clothes on our backs and our vehicle. At this time i would hope you all have been able to keep up with my long book, i needed to explain our story with every detail I could remember. If you could do anything, anything I appreciate that! We just need a mircale to get back on our feet and back into a place I can tell my children is HOME. Good luck to all the families out there that lost it all just like us.34423604_1541959636293740_r.jpeg34423604_1541959713951224_r.jpeg
