“We’re homeless right now,” said Rogers. “Like I said, it’s a numbing feeling. What do we do now?”
She said she returned to see the fire had become too large for her to contain on her own.
“I went to check but it was already well within going and I was like, ‘gotta go,’ so [I] grabbed Corey, grabbed my phone, went out the door,” She said.
Rogers said she escaped with her two-year-old son Corey and their two family dogs. one dog suffered from smoke inhalation.
The family lost nearly everything.
“We had a lot of people show up and help us and started donations, getting the boys some clothes, and offered to take them so they could have some place to stay,” Roger said.
