As the fire spread from
Carmen's house, his
bedrooms caught on fire.
His brother, Ray, woke them all up at the first sign of
trouble and evacuated everyone.
Here is Jim with his other brother Luis standing in what's
left of the
living room with the dining room behind them. Pictures
of his parents and family are on the wall behind them.
The Kitchen and Garage were the only parts untouched
but still damaged by smoke and water.
This was the house they all grew up in and left to them
by their parents when they passed away a few years ago.
Needs for the children include diapers, formula and food.
We'll let you know more when we know more.
