House on fire

My name is Shirlene Nelson. ON November 29th 2020 at 8PM my twelve year old grandson was still awake trying to  finish up his studies and he started to notice a strange smell kind of like smoke and out of curiosity he looked towards the window and saw a red flash of light he moved to the window to get a closer look and he saw our home catching fire and he quickly screamed from the top of his lung's to wake everyone up and said the house is on fire, everyone  were fast asleep and i was sleeping next to my six month old granddaughter the fire spread quickly to my room first i was only able to grab hold of my grandchild and i was in shock when i saw those flames i couldnt grab anything els but my granddaughter and i quickly ran out with the rest of my children and grandkids. We are a family of ten, five adults and five  grandkids who are six month's old two years old, five years old, seven  years old, and our savior my twelve year old grandson we lost not just  our home in this fire but but all of our memories and good happiness we had and all that is ours with it i am women who is sick with her heart i have to take medication's for me to go on and have the strength for my family and we are all devastated by this we now have nothing. no one was able to get anything out of the house we barely had clothes on our backs as we exit the premises so all of our things went up in flames even.
