On February 13th, Pete and Angel woke up to their curtains in flames. Within moments, the glass shattered behind the curtains and the fire engulfed the ceiling. It was too late to extinguish them, so they immediately woke up the two other families living in the home. Bailey, Shane, Drew, Amy, Wyatt and their two 9-month-old granddaughters.
