That is pretty messed up. A man and his son may die and you have no idea the circumstances but you are passing judgement on them. I pray that they are ok. I have lost family to a fire and wouldn't wish that kind of suffering on anyone.

Baby Peyton Farmer-Richardson and his father Travis Richardson have both perished in this fire and it was due to a Kerosene heater caught on fire and Travis tried to get it out of the house and that's when it blew up. Baby Peyton ran and hid under the bed. The baby perished today at Childrens Hospitall today and Travis passed away this morning. Please pray for Alesia and her family as she has been left homeless and completley without her son and her boyfriend of several years. I will also pray for the people who are passing judgement on this horrific accident.

Peyton Richardson-Farmer age 4 and Travis Farmer have both perished. There was no meth involved as some of you have assumed. Not only do I pray for my friend Alesia and the families of Both Peyton and Travis, but I pray for you poor souls who have jumped to pass judgement on a man who merely tried to save his sons life and both have died as a result. You must be ashamed of yourselves. May God bless you and broaden your mine and open your heart to him.
Please everyone pray for Alesia and her family at this time.

Thank you

It is true, Travis has died. However, unless Peyton has died in the last few minutes, he is scheduled to have tests done at 8 p.m. tonight and from there, it's in God's hands. However, no meth lab judgemental people. An exploded kerosene heater which Travis was trying to get out of the house to save his son and home is the reason. WHY does everyone always have to think the worst????

I have known Travis and his family since he and I were 4 years old. It is so sad to me that after seeing my friend die today that I look on here and see so many so willing to pass judgment on him. Perhaps if you were in the shoes of me and so many other friends and family members of his and Peyton's, you would not be so quick to judge. The cause was a kerosene heater. Maybe you can find it in your heart to show some compassion no matter what the cause of the fire was.

Kerosene heaters don't explode. The flash point of kerosene is too high. Thats why it's used as a home heater. Now a home with a 4 year old and a kerosene heater in it is a different story. I have two small children and had to get rid of my kerosene heater. They couldn't leave it alone. Threw stuff at it, ran into it, etc.

Why are you humoring someone who uses the title "There is no God". The name alone should tell you not to bother.

How dare you say something like that. Number one Mary is a good person, might not be the best person or the most honest but she means well so lay off her, she gets more crap than she deserves from people in this co. Num two a little boy died in that so if you were truly responsable for it I hope you rott in the devil's fire and num three her ex lives in Alaska now so if you did get someone's house it was the wrong one so you cost Innocent people their home. All I got to say to someone like you is I hope and pray you find the lord cause that is just wrong. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYS FOR THE CHILD, HIS FATHER AND FAMILY. MAY GOD BE WITH YOU ALL. JUST REMEMBER WHEN THE LORD SENDS YOU A CURVE BALL YOU JUST HAVE TO KNOW THE RIGHT WAY TO SWING AT IT SO YOU DONT MISS...
