Mike and Karen Tubbs Fire Disaster

Hi my name is Janette Hoburg, my parents Mike and Karen Allen lost everything in the Tubbs Fire. On Oct 9th at 2:30am my parents nightmare began. My mom got woken up to her dog Augie jumping on her trying to warn her that there was danger in the neighborhood when she looked out the window she saw a lit up red sky about a street or two away from her house. Half asleep and confused she then got a frantic knock at the door it was her neighbor saying the fire is coming we need to leave.  With about 10-15 mins until the fire reached them my parents grabbed their two dogs and the clothes they were wearing, they warned their elderly neighbors and hopped in their car and left not knowing what would happen to their home.  
My parents bought their house in 1976. They watched their house be built from the ground up.  They've lived in this house for 41 years, My sister Jennifer and I have grown up in this house for all of our lives, their 4 grandkids have grown up in this house, my mom has done daycare for 38 years and raised so many kids in this house, they share this house with their two dogs Augie and Stella, so many memories at this house and now its all gone. Devastated is an understatement.  Their house in coffey park is gone but the memories will never be forgotten.  At the age of 64 my parents never thought they would have to watch their house be built from the ground up again. We would be using this money to rebuild their home, their life for the past 64 years.  Please if you can help any way it would be much appreciated.  Thank You!
