The home was definitely NOT vacant. This was my family's home of 24 years. We lost everything and our 2 loving family dogs perished in the fire as well.

Thank you for confirming. At time of fire, there was some unconfirmed information as stated in the story. We will update the story. We are deeply sorry for your losses.


I walk by your home regularly and have often seen your dogs happily laying on the front porch. I noticed on my walk today that your home was ravaged by fire. I am so sorry for all your losses.
