Retired Firefighter Loses Home

This morning June 26 at 2:00 AM my brother, a retired firefighter, got a phone call from his neighbor notifying him that his home is engulfed in flames. He lost everything he owned except the clothes on his back and the car he was driving. A picture of his home is posted above to show you what his house looked like after the fire department left.
My brother lost the only pictures he had of his grandson that passed in 2012, He lost all of the memorabilia from his days as a Marine. He also lost his source of income when the contents of his home based landscaping business went up in flames.
With all of this loss`he is still in good spirits, he has been laughing to keep from crying and amazed at the fact that his fish and garden both survived.
