I was just about to get comfortable and go to bed. Then I heard the smoke alarm go off and then I started to smell something out of the ordinary. I then immediately grabbed my youngest son (3 yrs) and then ran out and grabbed my other son (5yrs) and we ran up the stairs, it was a struggle because the smoke was so thick making it hard to see and breathe. My other 2 children were fortunately upstairs (8 & 13 yrs) as well as my sister and she made sure they got out safely. The fire had spread through the whole basement and started to spread up the stairs. A pipe burst as well, so the basement flooded. We lost beds, all mine and my children's clothes burned etc, so much was damaged.  And for whatever else we had in-home, the smoke has damaged it all. Anything helps. I know this is a tough time for everyone right now. So please, anything helps.
