Would like to help a member of our community 1 of our own thats had a nightmare come true part of statement taken from her facebook "Basically, Saturday night myself and my 9 year old daughter have lost everything we owned due to a house fire caused by a electricity box that was built in the 1940s. Me and my boyfriend went for a bike ride for an hour while my daughter played nextdoor. When we arrived back my daughter went inside our home to my partner and our dog. She came out screaming and shaking. I couldn't get any words out of her. Then I saw smoke coming out the house. I run inside and my boyfriend was trying to put out the fire. Within seconds the whole house was in flames. He was given a fire extinguisher from the local shop but this wasn't enough. Not only was my partner putting his life at risk to save our home but so many neighbours tried to help too. It got to the point that nothing could of been done as my partners insides felt like they was burning as he kept goin back in. He had to shut the door an we watched our life's worth of things burn away. The fire brigade came and after a while managed to put out the flames. They told us they had never seen such damage from a electricity box. My down stairs window exploded an landed upstairs. Everything has completely gone. All this while my daughter stood an seen everything" we could go on but as 1 of our own were just trying to pull together and help a family out
