I go to his school, and he disliked going to the school because everyone teasesd him. This may be why he might have set his home on fire so he could return to his home inPakistan.

my name is Shazia. I am his aunt, I had witness the horrible incident front of me. I had to save my kids all three of them and my father-in-law. But God helped a lot. I don't know how I saved them. I know that I was not the one who saved my family, it was God who saved them.
He is my favourite nephew. Very peaceful boy. I love him so much, he is my son. I had raised him since he was a baby. I know a lot about him. Thanks for your comments. I appreciate it.

I am the mother of the 14 year old boy. On behalf of myself and my husband, we are strong believers in God and we have a lot of faith and support from good neighbors, family, friends, firefighters, police officers, etc. God bless all of them because without them we could not survive without the help of God. My husband(the boy's father)went back in the burning house 4 times risking his own life to save our son. Due to this my husband was in the hospital with minor burns to his nose, face, left ear, both hands and one foot. He also had inhaled some smoke. He loves his son unconditionally and is the best father, most loving father I have ever seen. Overall, my husband and I believe in our son and trust him.
