I ask --did any of the four think calling 9-1-1 might be important ? Accidental in nature. We'll see.

Where does it say none of them called 911? We have been teaching people to first GET OUT then call 911. As it looks they did the right thing, and none of the occupants were injured, and no firefighters were injured trying to rescue trapped victims.

Just curious "Duh" what makes you thik the family didn't call right away? That was the first phone call they made as they were running out of the house. Furthermore, why would the family torch the home when they didn't have renters insurance? They lost everything! Although the cause of the fire is unknown since an investigator has yet to determine it, the family was using a wood stove to heat their home. It appears to them this is where the fire started. So, "Duh" I surely hope you never experience losing your home to a fire, but if you do remember your words of advice to dial 9-1-1 becuase just dialing 9-1-1 will make everything all better.

At this time,we're just asking for prayers... Once they get their new home,they will be needing some things...(Dining room furniture,Living Room furniture,etc.) Unfortunately,my father didn't have renter's insurance so all of their personal item's won't be taken care of. Thank you all for your concerns and prayers. And "Duh", this is a very tragic thing that happened,why would you be an as*hole about something such as this,acting like people are stupid or something?!?!?! Grow up! You're very ignorant!

And "Duh",just FYI,my father's foot is messed up to where he has to walk around on crutches. As soon as he noticed the fire,he told my step-mom to get my 6 year old sister and my brother's dog and get out of the house,ran barefooted outside of the house to try to put the fire out WHILE HE WAS CALLING 911!!! DO YOU REALLY THINK A FATHER IS GOING TO TRY AND BURN HIS OWN HOUSE DOWN WITH HIS FIANCEE AND 6 YEAR OLD CHILD INSIDE?!?!?!?! What was your purpose of commenting on here?!?!?! HUH? TELL ME THAT?!?!?! UR FU**ING IGNORANT! Be happy that I don't know you!

thank you all for your prayers and blessings. they are staying with me and my family. K. Livingston is my cousin, and I understand where he is coming from. Please, if you do not have anything nice to say, do not say it at all. This is already hard on us, and we do not need or appreciate the rude comments, and thank you to everyone, we are so greatful! God Bless!

To "Duh"...Hmmm, Ahhhh, Huh, Ya don't say! Well now, let me tell ya a little story. 4 yrs ago my big bro built a home, then, my other big bro & his family moved in. Well, to save $$ in order to put food on the table, they decided to utilize the fallen trees as a means to heat their home. Huh, well, guess what? Unfortunately something went wrong and damn, the house burned down. The "Mrs" called 911 as they were ALL running out of the house. Oh, yeah, HE was running from one end to the other with a hose trying desperately to extinguish the fire, barefooted and no coat! Uh Huh you think? Well, the Lord will judge you someday and I will not for your unkind words and judgement. I will say that it has been terribly difficult not to be able to do things that my daughter and I would normally be able to do. However, when I was casually driving down the road and had PLANNED on stopping in to check on my brother (ya know, cuz I care), an unbelievable amount of fire trucks/ambulances were there attempting to save the home! However, they did not and by the Grace of God, I was able to give them shelter.
So, take your negativity and stuff it where the Sun don't shine! The community has shown an overwhelming sense of generosity and compassion for these people who they do NOT know by giving from their hearts. No one, I mean NO ONE, should ever have to go through what Bryan and his family are experiencing. I thank God for them, meaning, Buche' and his peeps and everyone who has a heart and is willing to help them make a new beginning.
By the way "Duh", are you any relation to the Donkey who made similar comments to Mrs. Buche' as we were attempting to buy food with funds that the Red cross gave them to put food on the table? Just asking...
