It is with a heavy heart i have set up this page, on Tuesday 14th november at around 1am in the morning my sister was awoken by a noise coming from downstairs, on waking her partner up (Chris) they realised there was on fire coming from under the stairs and engulfing the walkway, Chris immediatly ran down the stairs to put this out, Kirsty attended to the kids (Charlie and Rubie) the only way out of the house was down the stairs.
Chris tried his best to tame the fire so Kirsty could carry the kids to safety on doing this he has sustained severe burns to his head, neck, back, all down his right arm and feet, he is currently in queens medical centre and will be there for a period of time depending on how the burns set and he will require some forms of skin grafts.
Chris is an absolute hero in my eyes he saved my neice and nephew and my sister, Kirsty has sustained burns to her feet as she carried the children down the stairs that were on fire yet again the bravery showed makes me well up, she will be on crutches and off work for a while and i am thankful to have two people with that much courage in my family, thankfully the kids got out with very minor injuries and i can only praise Kirsty and Chris for this.
The main reason i have set this page up is Kirsty Chris and the kids have now lost there home (homeless) and most of the furniture in the home,clothes christmas presents presents and a whole lot more more, losing a home at any time is unbelievably hard but a month before Christmas makes it that little bit hard.
Christmas is a time for giving and i am hoping that my good friends of facebook could pitch in and help these courageous people out anything would be appriciated to there cause.
Thank you to you all
