Please help my Dad

Hello everyone. Last night at approximally 1am my dads house (Scott) was caught on fire. He is okay just suffered from some minor smoke inhilation. The fire began on the back porch against the house where my dad was dozing off on the couch just a few feet away inside. Luckily he smelled smoke and was awaken by it and went out back to see the recycling bin completely ingulfed in flames. He tried hisself to put out the fire along with the help of the neighbor but unfortunately the fire was to powerful to put out. The fire department was called and they arrived to put out the fire. From the picture I put you can’t see all the damages but the fire spread through the roof inside to the middle of the house where the fire fighters had to rip out most of the ceiling in order to contain the fire and put it out. The damages are tremendous but thankfully it could have been much much worse had my Dad not caught it at the time he did and luckily he is still alive. I am asking for everyone’s help to help raise the hopeful goal to try and ease the pain for my dad. My dad was supposed to go to the Dominican Republic next week with his long time girlfriend but unfortunately now they might not get the chance. I know I know big deal right? Well it is a big deal considering my dad hasn’t been on a vacation since before my mom died over 17 years ago. Those that know him know how hard my dad works day in and out and all the struggles hes had to deal with in life over the last couple of decades. Whether it’s dealing with my mothers passing, me and my sister’s stress as a single father of two, having his dream home forclosed on because of the economic crash in 08’ where he had to file bankrupcy, to getting laid off from work, to having open heart triple bypass surgery... the list goes on and on... He was at such a great place in life FINALLY after many hardshipped years and now this is going to set him back once again. I am asking for everyone’s help to PLEASEEEE help me raise this money for my Dad. He needs your help now more than ever in this unfortunate crisis. Every penny is going to go to the cost of the damages to his house. Please share this on all your social media platforms and with friends and family. Any help at all will be amazing and I thank you so much for it. Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to contact me at my cell 301-633-4427. Once again thank you for the consideration and god bless everyone.
