My roommate and I had rented an apartment there and were scheduled to move in that very day. I got a call from my brother telling me about it. I even got a call from my Mom who saw it on TV while on vacation in England. Everything was already packed and I was forced to move out of my other apartment. What a pain!

I had taken a new job and had just moved to Houston about 3 weeks earlier . I lost verything but he clothes on my back . I also had wo suits a the cleaners. While walking around just in daze I came across my turntable and my TV which some looter had grabbed along with some other people's things and he had asked someone to eep an eye on it while he went to get his truck. I grabbed and cop nd the looter never came back so the looter actually helped me salvage something. I knew no one in Houston yet and was single then so that night I had to go to a hotel alone and think about what had happened. A very tough timein my life.

I was there and remember it well. I had just gotten to the fire station from my part time job when the alarm came in. I've been to many big fires in the thirty five years that I was a firefighter but that was the biggest fire Houston has ever experienced.
