House Fire Left Our Dad Homeless and Vehicless

Bruce Barker 64,  a 21 year Bowie Tx resident was struck with tragedy 4/1/19 . He was awoken by his beloved dog alerting him that his home was full of smoke. I , his daughter had arrived to his home to visit and seen the smoke coming from the electric pole then flames we visible as i got closer. Our father had barely enough time to escape. Then his entire home and his 2 vehicles went up in flames. With his home being in a rural area unfortunately  it takes quite some time for emergency responders to render aide. By the time help had arrived there was zero structure left standing. Everything our father owned and held dear went up in flames with nothing to salvage. Our father has congestive heart failure and has suffered a major heart attack that has left him medically unable to work. He has nothing but a very small SSI/disability income that only amounts to what would be considered barely getting by. Please if you can we're asking for help for our father through this tragic time. He is in need of any and everything that he could put his life back together with... Any items to be donated you may contact me
