My mothers house burned down this morning. Thankfully she was not in it and her dogs were at her boyfriends, but she did lose everything that she had.

The fire started sometime this morning. Mom hasn't gotten the official report yet as she was just notified about it by her BF who mom sent over to her house to feed Tomahawk. He called her and told her that her house was gone. Apparently the neighbor had noticed it and called the fire dept., But no one thought to notify mom...

This is the first house my mother has ever owned, her dream house. She had only lived in it for 2 years, and now it is gone.

She thinks it was electrical. I however don't think it is that innocent as I know her recent ex boyfriend, but I am waiting to hear the report to assume anything...

So now my mother has nothing but a few pairs of clothes she had at her boyfriends house. I am not asking for money or anything else, just for you to pray for her that she makes it out of this ordeal ok.

Thank you.

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. It would be horrifying to wake up one day to find you'd lost your life's accumulation of memories and photos and everything else. But thank god she and her pets are safe. I hope things get better for her soon.

Oh my gosh, I am so sorry to hear about your mothers home. I can't possibly imagine what your mom and your family is going through. Thankfully no one was in the house at the time of the fire. She will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Wow, i cant believe that no one thought to notify your mum!
I am terribly sorry that this happened to you and your family though, your poor mum must be feeling so lost right now.
Its a true blessing that her and her dogs were un harmed from the fire.
Good luck to her :)

Grim. Say prayers to St Anthony, he always looks after you.

I wouldn't tear myself up with suspicion. Genuinely these things do happen. My cousin's house went up due to a fault in the loft. Thank God they were alright.

Things turn around though, they were pretty miserable for a while but he's just won £11,000 from a £5 bet on 4 the horse races!

What a blessing that your mother and her pets were not home! Things can be replaced. Having your loved ones safe is priceless.

Could it be that no one really knew how to get in touch with your mom? Does the neighbor know the phone number at the current boyfriend's house?


Trying to see a good side: She can have fun shopping for new stuff once she gets her insurance money. :D

That is terrible. So sorry to hear you went thru this. We almost lost our house to a fire 5 years ago. That is so heart breaking especially being so close to the holidays. I hope she can still manage to get back on her feet fairly quickly.

My thoughts and prayers go to you and your family.

Is it wierd to anyone that the bushes that were right next to the house didn't even scorch or tha shed in the background? Or that beam that was right in themiddle of the house, not a black mark one on it, that just stumps me to no end... I found that so odd...
