On Saturday the 9th (2018) my house caught fire and was destroyed at around 5 my foster dad left a piece of meat on the grill it fell threw to the bottom and even though it was turned off it was still hot enough to catch fire. The smoke from the grill fire was enough to let the fire alarms go off and my family got out of the house and called the fire department, By the time they got outside the smoke had already reached over and caught the house a flame. It burned from the top down. I got the call at work and left immediately to go check on my family i got there and police officers had blocked the road they let us threw when they realized who i was. There was a stretcher and i was scared that someone had been injured but to my relief no one was harmed our house was tumbling in smoke and four different fire departments where at the scene. i left to pick up some clothes cause i couldn't watch the huge flames devour every last memory i had. i got dinner and my manager let me have it for free since i was officially broke, foster care paid for my things but they wouldn't pay for my family's things so i bought what they needed.
when we went back to the house it was around 10 at night and it had started to rain, this was a good thing because the fire fighters where poring in water and it looked like it couldn't be stopped but with the help of god and volunteers and fire fighters the fire was out and the smoke was clearing. it didn't end tell after midnight and our insurance would only cover two rooms at days inn with two beds per room for the seven of us,  foster care got us another room and my foster mother couldn't stop her tears she had lived in that house for decades and all of her things were completely destroyed. the house was gone the only thing that remand where some black walls and burned marks. The second story collapsed and all of our possessions where gone. Nothing made it out and years of hard work evaporated front of us.   The motel wasn't 5 stars to say the very least the first three rooms we got had door malfunctions and wouldn't let us in. The second group had cock roaches and i cried my self to sleep that night. The next morning we went down for a "complementary" breakfast the only thing they had was bread and the toaster was broken. Later that night we switched rooms one final time and the rooms are not next to each other . we tried to stay together but  to our luck one of the rooms was across the building.  My foster mom had four other kids all that are special needs and her biggest concern was about there medication.  They all need medicine for different reasons but most of it is life or death. The red cross did everything they could to help and the next morning we got refills and i came to school. I feel empty i lost so much and our family had three cats who didn't make it out. one was a kitten and the other two we had for almost 10 years. the dogs made it out safely though. my foster mother worked hard her whole life and didn't retire tell after 70 she is almost 90 ans to old to get back to work, i work when i'm not at school but to be honest i just don't making enough to support all of us anyhow. We just need a little help to get by.  so please keep me and my family in your prayers. and every thing helps truly.
